Web Safe Colours

Blogs

From time to time I will be adding items to these pages giving details of how to achieve certain objectives, usually related to genealogy and the use of Legacy software, often in conjunction with other software.

I am not suggesting that the solutions offered are the only, or indeed the best, options to solving problems but simply that they are ways which I have found to work.

Safe Colours

Colours are a mixture of Red, Blue and Green and it is possible to create 256 (16 2) shades of each, expressed as values of RGB in either decimal or hexadecimal notation from 0 (#0 hex) to 255 (#FF hex). Hexadecimal numbers are always preceded by a "#".

The following colours are regarded as having cross-browser support. However, with modern browsers and computers other combinations of RGB will usually reproduce correctly. Colour pallets usually use these colours:
