This little page does a few nifty things via PHP:

  • Generates a random quantity, between 1 and 100, of hex color codes.
  • Calculates the best color, either black or white, to use for the text to show up when displayed on top of the color.

  • Combines each of the four parts as layers into a single little object image to be displayed next to its color block.
  • This is the right-facing template:
