If it is possible to assign a unique name to a custom color on a style sheet, would like to see an example.n Thanks.

CSS doesn't have any functionality like that. I would recommend using only the basic color names and use color codes for everything else. I don't trust that color names like "Aquamarine" or "LawnGreen" will always work.

 

Standard color names according to W3Schools.

aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, orange, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow.

I am not familiar with any way to do that, although you can certainly add a /*comment*/ to remember what color it is, and I do that regularly. I think there is an proposed CSS3 way to create variables -- but it is not yet real.

Thanks Dave, and I'm doing the comments already. It works ok, but variables will be welcome.
