That's where Javascript kicks in. You only need to use the javascript to 
modify your document (visual effect); you won't need it to submit to the 
server (the real action).

Or a XSS attack (Cross-site scripting). Basically, you want to check 
whether the string received by the server matches your own predefined 
list of colors before storing to the database.
