comment Color Theory: Is there a measurement of “colorfulness”?
And it was your next diagram, the one after 1.2.5, that finally made me understand "the color of an object" verses "the color from an object". Translating that to my question, i'd prefer something with higher Munsell chroma (rather than being dark and depressing), and higher Munsell value (so that black text on top of it is readable).

You can also see the question i asked (wow, time flies) four years ago: Color Theory: How to convert Munsell HVC to RGB/HSB/HSL. After my recent dive back into color theory, i see that RGB is meaningless without the white point and primary chromacities.

comment How to construct “lowercase digits” (i.e. text figures)?
i only ask about fonts because (as of this moment) the only way i know how to inspect characters of a font is Charmap, which only shows Unicode characters. i know charmap doesn't support investigating other font features, such as ligatures. Obviously i have to to do some hunting for a "font viewer". But knowing Calibri supports them gives me a benchmark for any viewers i find.

And finally, can you name an OpenType font that contains both "uppercase" and "lowercase" digits?

comment How to construct “lowercase digits” (i.e. text figures)?
Any insight on why the Unicode Consortium didn't encode separate glyphs for uppercase and lowercase digits, but did encode separate glyphs for uppercase A (U+0041), lowercase a (U+0061), and even sᴍᴀʟʟ cᴀᴘɪᴛᴀʟ (U+1D00)? I.e. what might be the reasoning that excludes separate uppercase and lowercase digits, but includes separate uppercase and lowercase letters?

@lawndartcatcher: Yes. i have a designed application, that should honor a user's color preference. Then there's the algorithm to "colorize" existing elements. You want to keep the various lightnesses the same, but change the color. But changing the color changes the lightness - even colors that have the same lightness.

Obligatory Animal Farm: All colors are equal lightness, but some are lighter than others.
