There is a very cool package on MathSource that lets you specify the
color endpoints of a gradient (or even a sequence of colors, if my
memory serves me correctly) and constructs a pure function for you
that colors things with colors from that gradient.  I don't know the
name of the package offhand but it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Hope this helps.
