Premixed Colors

When writing HyperText Markup Language (HTML) pages, specific colors may be established for fonts, links and backgrounds. Colors are specified by a six-digit "number" representing their red, green and blue (RGB) content. For instance, Blue is represented by 0000FF which includes 00 red, 00 green, and FF blue. The number 0000FF is referred to as an "RGB triplet."

By the way, the blue color of most of the   text   on this page and this web site is #23238E, which has no corresponding common name.

Here is an alphabetical listing of predefined color names with numbers and swatches:
