Yes, one objective was to show that my home-spun conversion formula  
is wrong or inconsistent with Mathematica. I derived it from an  
inverse formula, also "wrong", pulled from the Internet (http://

ToColor seems not to work with symbols. I'll try to infer the correct  
formulas by studying numerical outputs of ToColor.

I hadn't known of ToColor. Thanks for bringing it to our attention,  
however, I hesitate to use or recommend ToColor to others in this  
group. ToColor seems to be one those twilight functions that is  
documented in the kernel but not in on-line help. I can find it  
neither in v5's Master Index nor via v6's search box. Perhaps we are  
"not supposed" to use it? But we use what we must :-)

Meanwhile, I hope someone can address the subject of my posts. Thanks  
in advance.


When responding, please replace news with my first initial and full  
last name, as one word.
