I would like to import the Colour Box Template from Wikipedia ([1]), but I have no idea how to do such a thing or if it's even possibe. --GrantHarding (talk) 23:43, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

What would we use it for? - Shane latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 23:55, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
I want to use it to create little colour boxes next to the numbers on Sandbox:Pantone. --GrantHarding (talk) 02:19, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

To elaborate: This is what I've managed to do with Elmo and Kermit, by colouring cells in the table.

Skin:   375
Collar:   382
Mouth:   185
Tongue:   212

That works well enough for characters like them who have a limited palette. But for characters with a lot of different colours, or whose colours have changed over the years, it would be much more helpful to have little colour boxes that are in line with the text. --GrantHarding (talk) 18:23, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Hmm, interesting. It looks a lot better than all of those citation labels, which could be condensed in some way, like a sources list at the bottom. I like the idea of the smaller boxes, but how do you know those square colors are accurate? Is there any way to alter the coloring to the Pantone reference? -- Tony (talk) 19:12, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
The official Pantone website lists the closest hex code (e.g. 97D700) to every Pantone colour. --GrantHarding (talk) 19:44, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
So, it's accurate and it can make the page look better. I'm for it! But what about the Muppets Tonight style guide? Some of the colors are listed by percentages. -- Tony (talk) 19:55, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
I've just added a bunch for the Sesame characters, but I'm not sure how to handle combinations of colors for patterns, like Bert and Ernie's stripes, or the Count's sash. Any ideas? -- Tony (talk) 00:37, 14 August 2021 (UTC)
I've just finished adding the color templates to most of the characters listed (as well as adding the Hoobs). It's still a bit rough, but does anybody know how to handle the additional info and boxes focusing on multiple characters or outdated color samples? I'm thinking of contacting Chris Stulz for additional colors from the 2005 style guide. -- Tony (talk) 13:00, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
