Re: Color index

Hi Doug,

Ah, right, I remember stumbling on this before. Thanks!

Although, at least for me personally, it’s not as helpful when working on WPD design elements, as:
a) It doesn’t include descriptions, so I have to visually search for the color I need and there’s a possibility of picking the wrong one, since a few are similar
b) It doesn’t include HSL, which is tremendously useful in creating darker/lighter variations
c) It includes additional colors, which are used nowhere on the site
d) Several colors actually used on the website, are not in it

So even if I had found this when I looked, I’d probably still have made a new index.
