Hexahue    Sacgul

Hexahue was invented by Josh Cramer. He was inspired to come up with a unique alphabet that could substitute standard English writing for combinations of colours that were easily able to be distinguished. Hexahue uses only colour combinations of 100% brilliances, 100% absences, and 50% brilliance/absence of all colours, which is mid-gray. Hexahue colours are more "commonly" recognized colours, with "common" names, and yet they are simple to write in HTML notation.
