Colours on the Web is an interesting resource for helping those of you starting a new site or thinking of overhauling your existing one. It allows you to enter a color and it then suggests complementary shades for a tri-color scheme. You can even “Spin the Colour Wheel” and get offered three suggestions.

I followed the link there earlier today and liked it a lot. One minor annoyance: they don’t provide complementary hyperlink colors. Or, perhaps you could just wait for “Queer Webmasters for the Straight Gay Guy.”

    Straight Guy?

    That would make more sense, yes.

    Being an “old fart” I figured I’d always use the same color wheel I’ve used for 2 decades now.

    I think it will hit the trash soon.
