1996-1997, I created a popular freeware application called HTMLColorMaster
using Microsoft Visual Basic. HTMLColorMaster is a collection of
three integrated color utilities that were indispensable to Web
designers and developers. Unlike a lot of Hex <-> RGB color
converters available at the time, HTMLColorMaster featured some
very useful tools within the Color Coordinator utility including
a "Snap to Color-Safe" mode and the ability to instantly
see how each selected color will look as background, textual, unvisited,
visited and active links. Although HTML editors such as Dreamweaver
and FrontPage have their own integrated color tools, HTMLColorMaster
remains indispensible for those that rely on textual editors such
as EditPlus, ColdFusion Studio or HomeSite.
