Colors help create the colorful world of the internet. Without them, you would have a BORING black and white page of text and images. Colors can be used as backgrounds, text colors, and more.

Here is a chart showing a few of the basic colors available :

WHITE #FFFFFF YELLOW #FFFF66
RED #FF0000 GREY #C0C0C0
BLUE #0000FF GREEN #00FF00
Lt. BLUE #00CCFF PURPLE #CC33FF
BLACK #000000

This is a small sample of the many colors available to use on the internet. Below is a much larger chart showing the main colors. Color monitors around the world should see most colors the same way. There may be some varience depending on the visitors system hardware and settings.

Each color is represented by a 6 character letter-number. This is the hexidecimal (hex) number. Using a hex number to display a color requires the # symbol ahead of it. This lets the browser know that the following set of characters is a color code.

Some browsers can use a color word (WHITE, BLACK, RED, etc.) in place of the hex number. To reach a wider audience, it's best to use the hex numbers.
