WHY template:col IS BETTER THAN template:random colour:

  1. you have to know that COLOR is spelled in the english way, COLOUR
  2. T:Random Colour will generate colors that are irritating (T:Col cannot generate irritating colors)
  3. or too light to see (T:Col cannot generate colors too light to be seen).
  4. or boring colors like gray (T:Col cannot generate boring colors).
  5. T:Col is 4 times shorter to write out.
  6. T:Col has an advanced function, T:Col/A, for more choices.
  7. T:Col can do everything that T:Random Colour can, and more.
