What I use is xmag.  This takes a square of the screen and blows it up 
many times so that individual pixels are distinguishable.  Then if you 
click on those pixels, xmag will show you the hex value.  However, it
uses the longer version of the hex values (i.e. #ffff0000ffff) instead 
of the type of values most applications expect (i.e. #ff00ff).  So,
just drop every other two digets.
