Since the entry was here, I decided it needed an example. I also changed the color links to standard form (Color/Red, not color/red) and replaced "purple" and "grey" with "violet" and "gray", since those have been the names I've always seen used in electronics references. --loh

can anyone point me to a capacitor which users color codes? all the ones i've seen either out and out state the capacitance, or use the funny little 3 digit system which is even more confusing than resistor color codes. --User:jkominek

Can someone add a page for TIE/EIA-598—Optical Fiber Cable Color Coding - one reference at

A lot more could be written on the subject. origins, methods, variations, limitations, etc. ability of humans to perceive shades of gray vs different colors, etc. — Omegatron 01:35, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Removed section about friendly-fire system[edit]

These sections were plopped down in the article in incorrect spots, and seemed to be nothing but a promotion for a certain person's patent. If the invention in question is notable, then it needs its own article, and a link from this article, not just two big, largely unformatted paragraphs here.
