I just came across this article about the origins of CSS color names and thought it was interesting. Ever wonder where all those CSS color names came from?

Some entertainment value there for sure.

The only times I type out colors is for testing when I'll have something like:

Code: Select all

.testbox{border:1px dashed red}.testbox2{border:1px dotted green}
I might have an occasional color:red in an optimized style sheet since "red" is one byte smaller than "#f00", but everything else is hex.
