So,am I reading this correctly? You're saying that there is a type of
anthocyanin that is pinkish rather than the indigo ink ink pot color that comes
to my mind. And, you're also saying that brown is by definition when that pink
anthocyanin layers with yellow?
I'm only just typing this and I already
feel the void where Neil would have answered...
