  1. Great article!

    One point of discussion for me would be, if it would time to use the latest HSL syntax here instead. Based on the MDN reference’s browser comp table, all browsers support the newer alpha parameter and space separated syntax since 2020. And you already showed it under “What is HSL?”.

    Examples without transparency could be quickly changed to `hsl(211 96% 44%)`. “Adjusting transparency with HSLA” could then be shortened to “Adjusting transparency” and it’s CSS example from `background:hsla(11, 50%,50%, 0.473);` to `background: hsl(11 50% 50% / 0.473);`

    And a nitpick: “Cyan: 120 degrees” should be “Cyan: 180 degrees”.

    What do you think?
