Dear CSS group,

  I am writing in response to an appeal by my colleauge Steven 
Pemberton, concerning use of HSL notation for color descriptions.

  The annoying RGB notation is troubling to many users and certainly
error prone.  I encourage you to adopt a more human-centered solution
and HSL seems to be the only candidate for now.  The W3C campaign
for universal access would be undermined by adoption of only RGB. 

  I encourage your group and related committees to participate in the
HCI community, attend the SIGCHI conferences, and offer your proposals
to the HCI community for commentary.

  Sincerely yours...Ben S
