jQuery static Color class would be useful for cross-platform color comparison

I recently noted that the following code is not browser safe:

var HTMLtag = ... ; HTMLtag . css ( 'color', 'red' ); if ( 'red' == HTMLtag . css ( 'color' ) )




; It would be useful to have a jQuery . color ( String ) method thst creates a Color object with an instance method or boolean compare ( final Color color )

This is a very modest addition that would handle the css ( 'color' ) String return values of (inter alia ) 'rgb (255, 0, 0 ). 'red' and '#FF0000'. Obviously this could be extended to return RGBA. CMYK and other colr representations.

While this might be thought no core it's such a small addition that it might be though similar to jQuery . trim ( String ) ...

jQuery officially supports the jQuery.color plugin: https://github.com/jquery/jquery-color
