link: colour chart.
There are 140 named colours you can use in HTML - with this chart, you can see them all one screen. Show the full set or only the 17 which are offical CSS colours, resize the colour blocks, show or hide names and/or RGB codes, or have them pop up as you move the cursor around. Changes are instantaneous - effected by changing styles within the page already loaded into memory, and don't involve even disk access, let alone calling up something else over the Internet. Look at stylesheet in sourceview to see how these things are done.
Some discussion here of chart and Firefox bugs that had to be tracked down to make it work there.
