Colour schemes for web sites

The use of colour article is very easy to read. Very suitable for year 11 or 12 students learning about web site design. While the article does not mention CRAP design principles specifically it talks about some of them using words like

Contrast - "using very saturated colours all the time is not always good, by using shades you can make certain things stand out more or less than others"

It talks about the web safe colours, how they came about and the limitations of them.

This site referred me to an online tool that would be useful for creating a colour scheme. It is easy to use, free and useful.
