Colors are displayed combining RED, GREEN, and BLUE light.
HTML colors are defined using a hexadecimal notation (HEX) for the combination of Red, Green, and
Blue color values (RGB).
The lowest value that can be given to one of the light sources is 0 (in HEX: 00). The highest
value is 255 (in HEX: FF).
HEX values are specified as 3 pairs of two-digit numbers, starting with a # sign.
The combination of Red, Green, and Blue values from 0 to 255, gives more than 16 million
different colors (256 x 256 x 256).
If you look at the color table below, you will see the result of varying the red light from 0 to
255, while keeping the green and blue light at zero.

Gray colors are created by using an equal amount of power to all of the light sources.
To make it easier for you to select the correct shade, we have created a table of gray shades for
Some years ago, when computers supported max 256 different colors, a list of 216 "Web Safe

The 216 cross-browser color palette was created to ensure that all computers would display the
colors correctly when running a 256 color palette.
This is not important today, since most computers can display millions of different colors.
Anyway, here is the list:
