No, I base my argument on the fact that converting from decimal to
hexadecimal is not needed at all if you use the r,g,b notation. Other
applications may not be quite as simple as the very simple example used
here. It is somewhat like selecting the "natural" coordinate system for
math calculations. For example, it is sometimes fairly simple to
calculate functions that involve a circle or sphere with ordinary
cartesian coordinates. However using the natural coordinates for a
circle, polar coordinates, often makes the equations more
compact,elegant, and easier to handle. Of course the old 1996 script
likely used a more complicated hex/decimal conversion than was needed
for the simple problem; however I do not know enough about the status
of script and html in 1996 to know for sure if this was the case.
