HYPE’s Color Specifier for Netscape v.3

Once upon a time, in the primordial dark days of the early WWW, back when it was called the WWW, a site was born that listed all the colors you could ever hope for and their associated html # Hex values. It was a thing of beauty, a ray of rainbow light in the grey-backgrounded website monotony.
