I feel strongly that you should add a more human-understandable color
specification to the Cascading Style Sheet specification.  I hear that
you are considering the HSL model of color spec.  I think that this
spec is significantly more understandable by humans which will save
countless thousands of person-hours around the globe in attempting to
decipher color specs in CSS scripts.  And it will only cost a few
person-hours at most to implement the additional color model.

Please make the right choice and take into account the human aspect
of script writing and reading.

Sincerely,
+Rick Chimera
