an HTML Colour Picker

  NineColours is a helper application for choosing web page colours. Colours may be mixed by adjusting the colour sliders or by picking a starting colour from a colour palette. The display shows the colour as a 16 bit colour and as an 8 bit "websafe" colour. For each colour in the colour list a short note can be attached to remind you what intend to use the colour for.

NineColours can also be used as a colour notebook if you are choosing paint or other colour items.

NineColours was originally designed to help choose colors on a webpage. In the classroom, it can be used to help study the mixing of colors.
