  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Simple Colors contains a function called Color that takes a single text parameter. It is an alternative to FM7's built-in RGB function. Instead of specifying a color with separate Red, Green, and Blue values, you can use some of the typical CSS web color specifications (six-digit hex or named colors).
