What do I do with them?

How do you use these color codes to change the color of text? Is that all you can do with them?

Hey

Some fuckin' idiot spelled colors wrong. Should probably fix this.-- | T | BALLS! | 09:11 9 November 2009(BST)

No man, you need to get rid of that U. It's colors. Makes it look like retards run this place what with that ignorant backwater spelling and all.-- | T | BALLS! | 09:27 9 November 2009(BST)
And spelling something without a letter isn't retarded... -- Rahrah is pumped that he's going to lose another Manhunt. 17:40, 22 July 2010 (BST)

Joining here in the 'colours is a retarded word' bandwagon... who misspelled it anyway ? I bet it was a brit --hagnat 22:12, 26 June 2012 (BST)

The use of English, for a game, written by a brit, hosted in Slough. The horror. You start moving to pages like "Humor" and I'm going to be eating Dolley Madison's dinner and then setting the place on fire.--Rosslessness 23:20, 26 June 2012 (BST)
golly gee mate, ya speaking bollocks --hagnat 00:44, 29 June 2012 (BST)
Are we seriously starting this again? It shouldn't have been moved but no one has cared for three years(which is also why it shouldn't have been moved in the first place and doing so was essentially misconduct). Drop it. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 03:39, 29 June 2012 (BST)
C'mon, Karke. Whare's you sense of huumor (see I spelled it with 2 U's). ~Vsig.png 06:11, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

So if "colour" is such a superior spelling, then why does <font color="red">This work</font> and <font colour="red">this does not</font>? ~Vsig.png 06:25, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

It's especially strange since HTML was invented by a Brit. Bob Moncrief 13:55, 29 June 2012 (BST)
The addition of font colors to the HTML spec was driven by the competition between Netscape and Internet Explorer in the mid-90s, both of which were made by American companies. Anyway, while I agree in keeping with British spelling for a lot of material (e.g. humour) since this game is British in origin, the fact is that within the context of referring to hues on the web the term is technically "web colors", not "web colours". Having a help page use terms that are inaccurate and misleading in the context for which they are intended (i.e. for technical pursuits) undermines the purpose of the help page. That said, I don't care enough to do anything about it. Aichon 08:25, 30 June 2012 (BST)
You had me so convinced that you were going to change the spelling until that last sentence. LOL --Klexur 08:58, 30 June 2012 (BST)
I like to express opinions, but as soon as paperwork gets involved (e.g. having to file the move request), my motivation falters, especially late at night, as it was then. Aichon 20:08, 30 June 2012 (BST)
