Changing color for "updated"

I've just installed the stylish script that changes the color of the "updated" indicator in the Discussion list, from here:

http://userstyles.org/styles/16994

I was wanting to change the red to be a bit brighter, more tomato-red (it looks more like burgundy on my monitor). Don't want to get into calibration discussion, though! I've been looking at this chart to determine a better color,

http://html-color-codes.com/

but if I change the 600 to something else I get quite unexpected colors.

Could somebody set me straight on whether the color numbers in that chart should work, and that it's just a matter of changing the number in this line:

    color:#600 !important;

to, say the number "300", or am I way off in left field.
Thanks much,
Sheila

I think this color code is wrong. It needs to be a 6-hex digit code, like here: http://www.pagetutor.com/colorpicker/index.html
I find #FF0000 to do the trick nicely.


Edit: Another tip: In the Stylish script Full Browser Width, set the background color to #eeeeee, it's more pleasant to the eye than pure white.

try67 has it correct. The colors go 00 through ff (which is to say the hexadecimal equivalent of 0 through 255 of red, green, and blue with 255 being more rgb).

#f00 will work too. If both digits are the same, you're allowed to shortcut it down to one character and the browser expands it back out for you.

Aha, thank you both. I thought the color codes should be more than three numbers, but I didn't know about the shortcut syntax so I was trying other three-digit/letter codes and getting very odd results indeed.

Not necessarily. A three digit code will work in CSS. It basically doubles the values of each digit, so #335 translates to #333355. It is a part of the CSS specification (the six digit code also works).

Edit: Oops, sorry, didn't notice you said that at the end of the message.

quick and dirty stylish for hiding the "(Updated)" and showing the adobe air icon (little red... thing)...

kinda simulates the old "little red flag" experience...

why not something like this? seems a bit more nonintrusive than the air icon and blends in better with the answered icons

The blending part I don't like.  I want something that jumps out at me, not a chameleon that disappears into the background.

So far, the red (Updated) script works best—restored back to bright red from burgundy.

That "AIR" icon is awful.  Sorry.

yea, but you can mod the script to load whatever you want. just edit it in stylish to replace the url with any graphic you want.

i was looking for the "little red flag" but i'm not gonna host it for everyone... that's why i chose something from adobe's site.

In this enlightened country to the North of you, one can grow "Pot" legally if one has a license to do so, (For medical use).


The problem has been that the homes that have the legal right to do so are as bad in terms of Fire Hazard as the illegal Grow Ops. Our Fire Departments are cracking down on the legal ones; As they should.

The coppers don't fret either, if one smokes a joint in public. People high on pot aren't violent as crackheads, meth-heads and drunks are.

Oops sorry, though I was in the Lounge ...
