    Wow... that seems like a big mistake, especially since Macromedia is
    supposedly the biggest thing to happen to web development since Netscape...
    "What the web can be."

    The color flyout on the toolbox provides the websafe RGB colors (with
    their hex names)...

    Anyone who is both working in FH making web graphics and programming
    HTML would need hex codes since HTML doesn't accept RGB values for
    colors. So if you are trying to use the same color from your HTML you
    need to convert it over from hex to RGB in FH.

    There are several free downloadable or online converters you can use.

    Some web developers prefer to code colors in hex and use those hex values
    from program to program while developing. Even Photoshop allows you to
    "copy" the hex value of a color. Without getting into a debate over the
    merits of hex or not, my point is simply that an app that "supports the web"
    should "support the web" in the manner that web developers use applications:
    in this case, to keep the same hex numbers across the board (and
    applications) without juggling RGB values...
