Color[edit]

When using HTML, there are to basic ways to describe color:
  1. bgcolor=     
  2. color=

Assigned Colors[edit]

The assigned color scheme is easy to use, but can come up with some interesting colors as you learn to experiment with this technique.
This technique is based on Red, Green, and Blue as the primary colors. Each of these three colors can range from 0 to 255. These colors are expressed in hexadecimal (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F) which makes the range 00 to FF.
Combined, you will see something like this: #RRGGBB, for example #000000 is black and #FFFFFF is white.
For some examples that might make more sense, go to ... My Color Codes, the menu of colors is on the right side of the screen.
