Default Web Colour Selector

I posted this link on the Adobe Photoshop forum and found many people were interested, so I thought I might post it here in my "other" home. It is a little Flash tool that I built a few months ago for choosing suitable colors for my web pages. Someone there had asked how to build something similar, so I was spurred to finally upload it to my web site.

The address is http://www.whilo.com/color

Impressive piece of work. Looks useful. Thanks.

BTW: How are you specifying font sizes on that page? The type used for the hex values is close to unreadable for me in both Firefox and Safari. The sizes seem to be hard-coded somehow, as they do not respond to changes in my default font sizes nor to zoom commands.

If you look at the font size test page I uploaded for George, the small type on your page looks to be about 8 pixels in height (like the 80% of 10px type near the top).

That page is entirely done in Flash (the index page to the site is in HTML, but was done a long time ago, and might have been done in pixels). Which page do you refer to. The Flash stuff is supposed to play in a full window, and will enlarge as the window enlarges.

That said, I haven't looked at it in a Mac, ever, so I appreciate knowing if some things should be bumped up.

I guess I was looking at the index page (the page in your link). I will take some time and play with it, getting past the instructions and clicking on front-page stuff, which is what I explored earlier.
