New Colors!!!

I wonder if it has got anything to do with the ASCII or Unicode code points.

ASCII 33-41:
[color=!]Ni hao
[color="]Ni hao
Ni hao
[color=$]Ni hao
[color=%]Ni hao
[color=&]Ni hao
[color=']Ni hao
[color=(]Ni hao
[color=)]Ni hao

Edit: it doesn't work.

ASCII 65-90:
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao

Hm ... ASCII is 7-bit, while the colours are 24-bit (for true colour) ... maybe the first character is R, the second is G, and the third is B? Let me try that out.


ASCII 65 + ASCII 65 + ASCII 65-90:
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao

Edit: Nope, it's not working. What's the maximum number of characters for it to work?
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao
Ni hao

Edit: OK, at least four. Back to square one.

I can't believe inputting random words doesn't return an error that breaks the code. Well, I reckon JQ's right in that words written containing hex letters (a to f) register a value, thus why words lacking any of the 6 letters is black. It has no value and thus is 0. I'm not quite sure how the value's placement is determined, however.

The length can change the colour, but I don't know why. For example the following two have the same hex letters but different arbitrary letters following. Thus they both are the same colour:

##############################
##############################

Adding extra endings, however, even one character extra, changes it, making it darker:

##############################
##############################

Adding multiple random valued letters also changes it significantly.
##############################

Perhaps it is the last six letters that change the value total? But then, shouldn't "acepiggyz," lacking all valued letters, be black? Instead it seems to retain some of its original colour.

##############################

Looks like it doesn't only register the last 6, otherwise the code below should be black. I'm not sure why that is.
##############################

Oh well. Kind of interesting. Time to test my names:

Thank goodness my full name is light green. Just like I wanted. I'll stick with that. :]

Happy ever after in the marketplace, Desmond lets the children lend a hand. Molly stays at home and does her pretty face, and in the evening she's the singer with the band!
