HTML Color Codes Chart


So you want a specific color on your web page? Some programs allow for WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). This means the program will allow you to select a color and that color is what you will get on your web page. Other programs will allow you to type in the color name but these will only be your basic colors such as red, green and blue. If you want to vary your colors in any way, you will need the hex html color codes to place into your html.

Hex html color codes can provide you with any color you can imagine. Using a hex code chart will ensure that you have chosen the exact color you want for your web page. Hex codes are a mixture of numbers, letters or both. Hex code will include the numbers from 0 to 9 and letters from A to F. A pale pink color uses the simple code of #FFCCCC while a hot pink will be #FF33CC.

Using the hex code system you will discover that the six numbers used in an html color code represent the primary colors. The first two numbers will tell the computer how much red to place in the color. The second set of two numbers represent green and the last two blue. There is no need to memorize these color hex codes. You can simply print out a chart or just keep a color hex chart open in a window on your computer screen. Today you can find a hexadecimal code for thousands of colors, making it possible to match logos, fonts, clipart and other items displayed on your web page.
