It’s funny how the internet works. Last year I created this mini resource of all the valid CSS colour names i.e. tomato. Mainly so I could reference them as I get a kick out of using names rather than #FF6347. Anyway the site sat there discreetly for a good 5 months then I guess someone stumbled upon it, tweeted it and suddenly I was get hundreds of tweets referencing the site. Nice to know that other people get a kick out of using papayawhip and goldenrod. The <Code> on this version of my site is set in hotpink a current favourite of mine.

    Nice page(s) and handy if needed. A thought: what about adding anchors (e.g. id’s) to each colour, so it could be directly linked a la http://colours.neilorangepeel.com/tomato … and step further: adding for example GitHub style anchor link on hover so it is easy to copy link to particular colour.

      Both great ideas! Will look to add those soon.
