<B><font size=+2>ColourDB</font></b>

<p>wxWindows maintains a database of standard RGB colours for a predefined 
set of named colours (such as "BLACK'', "LIGHT GREY''). The application 
may add to this set if desired by using Append. There is only one instance 
of this class: <b>TheColourDatabase</b>.

<p>The <code>colourdb</code> library is a lightweight API that pre-defines
a multitude of colors for you to use 'out of the box', and this demo serves
to show you these colors (it also serves as a handy reference).

<p>A secondary benefit of this demo is the use of the <b>ScrolledWindow</b> class
and the use of various *DC() classes, including background tiling and the use of
font data to generate a "building block" type of construct for repetitive use.

<B><font size=+2>Important note</font></b>

With implementation of V2.5 and later, it is required to have a wx.App already
initialized before <b><code>wx.updateColourDB()</code></b> can be called. 
Trying to do otherwise will cause an exception to be raised.
