Is there a recognised or correct way to display an area of color, using css?
if not, is one planned, and if not why not, this is plain weird.


The following works in a number of ua's but not ie6, as a 'broken' link 
is displayed.

<style type="text/css">
    .purple{background-color: #990099;}

<a><img class="purple" width="32" height="32" alt="Purple" ></a>


a dhtml paint project under construction is here:
