Please add my vote to those requesting that HSL be added as an alternative 
to RGB in color specification.  RGB is much more difficult for people to 
read and and to use to envision the resulting color; a person who has 
learned a color wheel can much more easily understand an HSL specification, 
and can approximate a desired color with it.  HSL should be available for 
the set of users who prefer it.

Thank you,
Teresa L. Roberts, senior human interface engineer
