Filled my little world right up, right up...

Rebecca's Gift

I use the CSS standard colour, rebeccapurple a lot on this site out of respect for a little girl, whom I have never met, who died when she was 6 years old.
Her father, Eric A. Meyer is arguably also the father of CSS.
The colour was originally proposed as beccapurple, but Rebecca had decided that when she was 6 she wanted to be called Rebecca because Becca was a kids name.
She died almost 12 hours after being 6. The internet community did the right thing and named it rebeccapurple.
Eric tells the story best in a few short paragraphs here.
