for me, the hex makes more sense.

I agree, .jeff. My original statement was made tongue-more-or-less-in-cheek.
"black" and "white" are the _only_ color names I use, and then not
particularly consistently. Go hex! (and none of that wimpy 3-number stuff).

I guess I owe my first tip.

<tip type="NS4 image links" author="Andy Hardacker">
You can eliminate (well, hide actually) that annoying border around images
in anchor tags by setting the color equal to your background color. (Setting
width:0px seems to have no affect in NS4.)

.no-border { color:#FFFFFF; }
<a class="no-border" href="whatever"><img src="wherever" /></a>
