While we're on the subject of Qualatex colors, let me put in my still ignored 
request.

PEARL ORANGE
PEARL ORANGE
PEARL ORANGE

I'm not in the manufacturing end, but I know that for years time I lobbied 
for a jewel tone orange.  Finally one day they produced Mandarin Orange.
Living in Syracuse, home of the Orangemen (watch for them in the Final Four 
this March)  I have, perhaps a bigger market than most for orange balloons.  
Am I the only one frustrated by the fact that I can't have a PEARL ORANGE?  
It is nice that they come out with more and more shades of pearl blue, that's 
the complimentary color to Syracuse Orange, but I always feel a little 
inadequate when I have to tell a customer, "Yes, I really like the pearltones 
too, but, sorry, there is no such thing as pearl orange."
