Color-Name Dictionaries has become my most
popular webpage, averaging 150 visits per day.
It is linked from Wikipedia and elsewhere.
Chirag Mehta has created a
Name that Color
webapp using the
Resene Paint Colours list.
There is even a
Color Dictionary iPhone app
based on the
NBS-ISCC Centroids and
Dictionaries of Color Names.
Unfortunately, Color-Name Dictionaries has
not been noticed by the
X.Org Foundation nor the
World Wide Web Consortium, whose products
contain deeply flawed color dictionaries from the 1980s. Instigating
change in the face of so much organizational inertia is a daunting
