    I remember working with someone that showed me a color "code" for wiring
    that the phone company used to order the wires on a phone punch down panel.
    It went by wire pair like blue-white/white-blue,
    green-white/white-green.....
    Does anyone know the code and is it used today? Also would it likely be
    used in the building of cables by manufacturers to set the order of wires to
    pins in cables?

    I once saw that someone wired something with the color coding of resistors,
    0=black, 1=brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, grey, white

    Which standard (if any) is used for telephone wires I dont know.
