CSS has supported the compact form of hex colour codes such as #ABC instead
of #AABBCC (i.e., websmart to quote the tool being discussed) and CSS
supports the RGB model as in color: rgb(255, 0, 0) or color: rgb( 100%, 0%,
0%) but HSV is new to CSS3.

I don't know what kind of browser support there is for the HSV model though.
