HTML Color Table

Office 2003

Colors can be specified in HTML pages in two ways—by using a color name, or by using numbers to denote a red-green-blue (RGB) color value. An RGB color value consists of three two-digit hexadecimal numbers specifying the intensity of the corresponding color.

For example, the color value #FF0000 is rendered red because the red number is set to its highest value, FF (or 255 in decimal form).

Note  While these color names might not be recognized by other browsers, the RGB color values should display accurately across browsers. When specifying color values for Web pages targeted to work across different browsers, use the RGB color values.

The following table lists the colors supported by Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.0 and later.

User-Defined System Colors

Microsoft Windows® maintains a set of system colors for painting various parts of the display. In addition to the colors defined in the color table, in Internet Explorer 4.0 and later these system colors may also be specified as color values in Web pages.

Users can set system colors for future Windows sessions using the Windows Control Panel. The following table illustrates how these color names correspond to the colors defined in the Control Panel.

Note  The colors that do not correspond to any Control Panel colors can only be set programmatically using Windows APIs and cannot be defined by the user.
