xcolorsel is actually only a new release of xpalette. However I was asked
to change it's name to change confusion with other xpalette's. Apart from
the name change a few compile time options were added, xcolorsel compiles
now out of the box on X11R5 and X11R6. And support for readonly colormaps,
that is TrueColor, DirectColor, StaticGrey and such was added.

xcolorsel displays the contents of your rgb.txt file (or other file of that
format) in a window together with an example tile of each color. Also
the numbers defining the color in any color space supported by X11R5/6
are displayed. You can try interesting fore- background color combos in
xcolorsel as well or of course copy and paste either color names or
values in formats suitable for C-Source or X-Resources. This is pretty
useful to find nice colors for your own desktop customization. It is also
possible to pick a color from any window on the screen and search similar
colors in the list of colors. This lets you find a name for a similar color.
(Apart from displaying the numbers defining the color in any colorspace
you like)

For the sake of completeness there is a lsm file as well:
