The Netscape named colors can be found at http://www.utoronto.ca/webdocs/HTMLdocs/Book/Book-3ed/appf/color2.html.

If you're not worrying about safe colors, remember that any RGB color combination can be converted to hex code. The R makes the first 2 characters, the G the 2nd 2 & the B the last 2.  For those not blessed with being able to easily convert to base 16, you can use the Windows Scientific Calculator, in Decimal mode, type in the 3 digits of the color, switch to Hex & it'll give you the hex equivalent.

KenAdney,
The link that you gave me is not valid. Are there some mistake with that link?

Ex: The Teal color is #008080

Darn, I cut & paste the thing so I don't know why it's not good.  It's the second link at:

http://google.yahoo.com/bin/query?p=named+colors&hc=0&hs=2

although winningl's link will supply the same info, but mine will have all the color names on the screen at once.

Trang,


If you are looking for a list of the standard Explorer/Navigator color names by HEX code and RGB, check out

http://www.ora.com/catalog/wdnut/excerpt/color_names.html

Here, teal is listed as #008080 (the hex number used for your HTML page) and as 0,128,128 (the RGB format).

As a side note, if you really want to get specific with colors for the web, or want to be able to convert ANY RGB into HEX (or vice versa) plus have a great tool for your graphics work, try Jasc's PaintShop Pro.

You can download a free eval version from C|net

http://download.com.com/3000-2192-7057820.html?tag=lst-0-1


it's color selector provides you with the RGB values and HEX values of 16 million colors (although, the standardized naming convention, ie TEAL, does not apply).


Regards!

No offense, Eric, but that was what I was trying to say in my earlier memo.  If you know the RGB's for a color (which you can get in the Define Custom Colors of Windows Paint) then you can use the Scientific Calculator to convert 'em to hex.  You don't have to have any extra program...although I too like PaintShop Pro a lot.

Ken... no offense taken.  I just had a feeling that what he was looking for was a chart that provided everything without the work.  :)
