`Chroma: a reference book of LaTeX colors'
 by Dr. Uwe Kern
(chroma at ukern dot de)

v1.00 (2004/04/04)

This reference book presents several lists of colors and their
respective parameters in a number of color models.
The lists are constructed either by parameters or by name.

`Colors by parameters' displays systematic series of colors, based on
3-tuples of numbers that are interpreted as color parameters in the
`rgb', `cmy', and `hsb' color models.

`Colors by name' displays sets of colors that have been given specific
names such that LaTeX users do not have to care about their
parametrisation. However, as soon as there is the intention to use
these colors outside the LaTeX world (e.g. website construction or
drawing programs), the parameters suddenly gain importance.
For each color name, we display
- the color itself plus the name of the underlying model,
- a 50%-tint (mixture with `white'),
- a 50%-tone (mixture with `gray'),
- a 50%-shade (mixture with `black'),
- and the complementary color.
Additionally, for the base colors defined by the `xcolor' package, also
all 50%-mixes of base color pairs are included.
