I understand there is a proposal to add HSL as an alternative 
method of specifying colors in style sheets.  I am writing to 
express my strong support for this proposal.  As a web page 
designer and user of web design tools, I find the hex codes 
required for RGB to be cryptic and not memorable.  HSL, on the 
other hand, makes sense from the perspective of how people 
think about color.  

Thanks for your consideration.
