Guide Review - Colors Guide

This guide is easy to use and a handy RGB or Hex codes color reference for anyone who publishes with colors. It could be made a little better in the "Hex Color Codes" list if users could click on a color name and link to that same color in the "Hex & RGB Codes" list; so they could find a color by its family and easily see its RGB value as well.
