Default Wires how to post them

if a wire is Black with a red tracer it is written with the main color of the wire first followed by the tracer color. such as:
Black /rd
or if Blue with a green tracer the Blue needs to written first followed by the tracer color:

BL/ grn

if not it can mess people up. there is a proper way to do wiring and how it is written
because if backwords it means something completley different

BL is ambiguous. I've found the most understood wire colors use the 3 letter nmemonic. I.e. Red Yel Blk Blu Grn Wht etc. I totally agree with your trace color method, i.e. Vio/Gry or Orn/Pnk

As I publish wiring diagrams, I should have some credibility.

I always use VIO instead of PUR. I just had a thought...

I just checked Crayola for color standards - disappointing as many are multi-worded like 'Tickle Me Pink' - Crayola single word colors are :
APRICOT ASPARAGUS BITTERSWEET BLACK BLUE BLUE CERULEAN CHESTNUT CORNFLOWER DANDELION GOLD GOLDENROD GRAY GREEN INDIGO LAVENDER MAGENTA MAHOGANY MAUVELOUS MELON ORANGE ORCHID PEACH PERIWINKLE PLUM PRUNE RED SALMON SCARLET SEPIA
SILVER TAN WHITE WISTERIA YELLOW

Anyone know what Cerulean or Periwinkle look like? Or Wisteria?
OK So much for Crayola for standards.

Standard HTML colors are just as bad like AliceBlue and BlanchedAlmond.
Standard Internet colors are good: White Silver Gray Black Red Maroon Yellow Olive Lime Green Aqua teal Blue Navy Fuchsia Purple

But a wire labeled FUC/OLI just wouldn't stand a chance.
nuff
