This class provides a list of colors, along with a methods that allow you to use them . You can look up a color name by hex code or approximate decimal value. You can also "colorize" strings using MATLAB's ability to understand basic html syntax.
I use this as part of a symbol manager that allows users to choose colors for markers,lines, etc. Since I realized that RGB values don't mean much to a user, I wanted to provide a closest-fit name. Then, realized that for non-english speakers, I might as well color the name, too. This class allows me to do that.
