One other thing to add fuel to the fire: most *red* LEDs have a pretty

Sorry to disagree with Dave but an experienced designer working with a
parts purchaser who understands and obeys a 'Do Not Substitute' label can
effectively use LEDs as voltage references. But I agree on one thing: its
not a good hobby technique just because of the variety of LEDs available.
