To get back on thread. I think, after a few days, I prefer the old plain white.

I like the grey - its a subtle graphical reference to the left column on NFS, boosts the corporate image... yes, I am making it up but I like it anyway.

Wasn't it more like off-white with a hint of magnolia and vanilla?

You may have made it up, but it's one of the reasons for the change! The other is that the white was too dazzling for my tired eyes, and this is much easier!

And as gastephen said, it's #EFEEE4, so enough of all this magnolia business! This is a hex number only environment!

Easy really:

Quote:
A hex triplet is a six-digit, three-byte hexadecimal number used in HTML, CSS, SVG, and other computing applications, to represent colors.

The bytes represent the red, green and blue components of the color. One byte represents a number in the range 00 to FF (in hexadecimal notation), or 0 to 255 in decimal notation.

This represents the least (0) to the most (255) intensity of each of the color components. The hex triplet is formed by concatenating three bytes in hexadecimal notation, in the following order:

Byte 1: red value
Byte 2: green value
Byte 3: blue value

It's the hex colour code defining the particular colour and is essentially a 3-tuple specifying a point in the colour space using the RGB model. Put another way, it is three pairs of hexadecimal digits, each giving the intensity of the red, green and blue colour components, respectively, on a scale of 0-255.

[Edit - I see Ben has just explained it when I was composing this]

Just saw this thread. Hadn't noticed up to this point (which is a good thing I would say). But I get the rationale behind it.
