red

I always thought it was orange :P

Is it meant to be red? :)

Could be the white background, though.

No, it's red.

And the background is pale blue.

I think maybe you need to adjust the colors on your monitor, Xillen. :)

Well, they might be red, but they're really tiny, and their background on the main page is most definitely white (246/246/246 according to my MS Paint).

And I checked. The core of the letters themselves are indeed pure red (255/0/0). However, if you zoom in on them, you'll notice that only very few pixels are actually this red color, while most are softening pixels, which hold varying degrees of green and even a bit of blue, and thus are technically orange.

So I'll stay in the opinion that, while they were intended to be red, are actually orange! :P

I think your MSPaint might be a little off...?

My Photoshop says the background is hex #f6f6f6 - which I already knew, since I've done some tables work with the background colors before. >_>;

And... yes, it's red, with anti-aliasing. That doesn't make it orange, because the majority of the pixels are in reddish hues and tones.

At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter if your monitor is correctly configured. As long as you can tell which colors denote which positions, I think you'll manage, even with a white background and orange text. :P

#F6 is exactly the same as 246 :) If that doesn't count as white (which should be 255/255/255 or #FFFFFF if you prefer hex), it would be a very, very light shade of gray, but not blue.

Reddish, but with the anti-aliasing towards white, they appear more orange than red. :P

Anyhow, I like orange. Red is too stern :P

*approaches this forensically*

Just for giggles, I took my ancient copy of PaintShop and made three reference histograms:  One red ($FF0000), one yellow ($FFFF00) and one orange ($FF8000)  I then took a screencap of Bliss's name as a red-text sample, cropped out as much white as I could, and did a fourth histogram.

Other than the expected peak at white ($FFFFFF), there were two significant peaks near the red reference, another significant peak very close to white, and four minor peaks (less than a quarter of the size of each of the other three) widely scattered around the orange reference.
