Minor error

I think you forgot to remove the two square brackets following 'olive' (/forgot to add them before) -- Sixorish 07:58, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

New color to add

​Could someone add the color laser lemon into the yellows in the x11 colors. The autoconfirmed status is supposed to be activated here too so that I can add some help. This is the following code that should be added below the yellow.

|LaserLemon ||FF FF 54||255 255 84  
|- style="background:laserlemon; color:black

I would like the code to be added below yellow in the X11 color names. Also, Laser Lemon is a known floursesent yellow too.--Sonic & Gobo Fraggle 3 (talk) 20:21, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Color names

It looks like we need to remove the spaces from the color names. Using a color name of "LightSalmon" works, but "Light Salmon" with the space doesn't. It should also be noted that the color names are not case sensitive, so "lightsalmon" is equal to "LightSalmon". —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 19:54, December 15, 2013 (UTC)


This was very helpful. Thank you so much. BEN (talk) 00:21, July 14, 2014 (UTC)IM STILL ALIVE


I just hope that this feature could be compatible with Non-American English (you see in British English we write color as colour). I hope it will be edited (unless Wikia can not be edited further, then I might have to find a way of dealing with that).

This isn't going to change. The actual way you specify colour uses the web standard CSS, which uses the word color and only the word color. Plus, it's better to be consistent. -- RansomTime 12:24, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

New source

I added to the article, a list here on Wikia which I created some time ago for precisely the purpose of this help article. I felt the need to create it because the Wikipedia article (1) isn't a unified list which is sortable by values other than "hue", hence (2) using that list, it is difficult to find a replacement colour of similar luminance, saturation etc., and (3) the Wikipedia version doesn't have the "gamma" column, which is far more useful than the misleading "Brightness" column. (Blue has the same "brightness" as lime. but is only about 1/6th the real perceived brightness. The gamma values show their true brightness, relative to each other and to white.)

It was removed, but as explained above, I believe this removal was in error because it is fundamentally different from the Wikipedia version and hence offers a different type of (possibly more) utility. Thus I hope this error will not be repeated. — evilquoll (talk) 13:34, October 15, 2017 (UTC)
