Gray redirects to grey. If you want to add a new section at ==Web color== to emphasise the distinstion this would probably be a good idea. --Phil | Talk 15:12, May 10, 2005 (UTC)

I have reverted Nihiltres as per User talk:Nihiltres#Template:Web colours. Jimp 23:32, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Order of shades of black[edit]

I think that for aesthetic purposes, grey should come after silver, in order to maintain a certain order for the colors. Thank you! |SUBZ3R0| 00:02, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Well since no one said no - I said yes, done.danielfolsom 22:52, 18 May 2007 (UTC)


There is quite obviously a missing color of green on the template that is conspicuous by its absence: It is "Christmas green," holiday green, or a very generic straight-ahead green, not just a shade of it. None of these shades would do in concert with red. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rin3guy (talkcontribs) 19:11, 31 March 2009 (UTC)


Hello. Could anybody add the interwiki link, please?

Makes more sense to move the documentation to a /doc subpage. --MZMcBride (talk) 17:48, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
