Scriptaculous: Effect.Highlight not converting 3 letters colors to 6 letters

Reported by Damien Le Berrigaud | April 22nd, 2008 @ 06:02 PM | in 1.8.3 bugfix release

I found that by creating an InPlaceEditor giving an highlight with 3 letters: '#fff'.

In firefox the Effect.Highlight will "work" and no error will be raised.

In IE I get an error when the "LeaveHover" Effect.Hightlight "update" method is triggered.

The reason is because line 496 of effects.js does a slice to get each "part" of the color. which results in having "#fff" transposed to [255, 16, NaN] (after slice and parseInt).

A simple solution is to make sure we convert 3 letters colors into 6 letters colors (see attachment for PATCH proposal).
