    HSB works because it presents color choices in a clear and concise way: You can pick a hue by traveling up and down the spectrum, and then chose its brightness and saturation. Simple and effective! Try to do that within the RGB or l.a.b. UI framework. You can, but you need an in-depth technical knowledge of those color spaces to navigate them. HSB is not perfect, but thus far, it is the most natural color space to pick colors on the screen and the most suitable for designers and artists. The ways some color spaces work on the computer are technically sound, but, perceptually, they are nightmares when it comes to picking and adjusting colors from within the color space. Because in InDesign you can create both print and digital media, it's crucial to include RGB, CMYK, HSB and HEX input. HSB is the most intuitive and consequently should be the first one on the list. It's unbelievable that the InDesign team has neglected us for so long.
