You can check out the picture I've linked to below to see exactly what I mean. When I select one of these colors i get the black exclamation point in the yellow triangle and won't let me choose the color. Any ideas as to what is going on?

This is in Illustrator CS on Win XP, I was also having this happen in Illustrator 10. Thanks.

    Paul,

    You are selecting colours that lie outside the gamut of the doent (which
    I expect is a CMYK mode doent).

    The CMYK gamut is MUCH smaller than the RGB one. Selecting RGB rather than
    HSB would also be more appropriate.
