HTML Color Styles


Colors are very important to give a good look and feel to your website.

Hex Code (Hexadecimal colors representation)

A hexadecimal is a 6 digit representation of a color. The first two digits (RR) represent a red value, the next two are a green value(GG), and the last are the blue value(BB).

A hexadecimal value can be taken from any graphics software like Adobe Photoshop. Each hexadecimal code will be preceded by a pound or hash sign #. Following is a list of few colors using hexadecimal notation. Following are some examples of hexadecimal colors −

Let us see an example to implement the Hex style in HTML to represent colors −
