Is there any way to customize the color picker in HTML 5?

Problem

I’m building a website with HTML5 and CSS3, and I want to create a unique color picker with HTML5

Is there any way to customize the color picker?

Solution

In Opera, the only browser to have implemented the color element, you can customize the set of colours offered with a datalist:

<datalist id="greyscale">
<option value="#000000">
<option value="#333333">
<option value="#666666">
<option value="#999999">
<option value="#cccccc">
</datalist>
<fieldset class="col">
<legend>Color element 2</legend>
<label for="excolor2">Color: </label>
<input type="color" id="excolor2" name="excolor2" list="greyscale">
</fieldset>

Here’s some examples.
