Given that "#rgb" expands within channels (#rrggbb), why should "#mn" expand across channels (#mnmnmn)?

Hey Markus,

I completely agree. I sent a tweet out about this a while back:
https://twitter.com/#!/ChrisNager/status/83651049558253568

@ChrisNager:
"As far as color hexcodes go in #css, I've always thought if #0cf works for #00ccff, shouldn't #f work for #ffffff and #a1 work for #a1a1a1?"

Cheers!
