' convert a VB color code to the ##rrggbb format used in HTML attributes

Function ColorToHTML(ByVal color As Long) As String
    ' HTML color codes are in the format #RRGGBB (red, green, blue)
    ' while Hex(color) returns numbers in the format BBGGRR
    ' therefore we just have to invert the order of the
    ' hex values of red and blue
    Dim tmp As String
    tmp = Right$("00000" & Hex$(color), 6)
    ColorToHTML = "#" & Right$(tmp, 2) & Mid$(tmp, 3, 2) & Left$(tmp, 2)
