Software. These are a few free tools that I have found useful. There are also many commercial programs for production of color documents and for management of color display and printing.

Visibone. Includes a number of interesting resources for website color design, some free, some for purchase. One of them, Color Lab, is a free interactive web tool for selecting colors from the "web-safe" color set. It has several clever and useful features.

Psychophysics Toolbox. This is a free software library that runs in Matlab. While mostly useful to color vision researchers, there are modules that do many useful technical things relating to color display.
