Colors for the Internet


I have noticed that it is difficult to create pictures and graphics to my web pages that are suited to everyone looking at them.

One reason is that their computer screens have different resolutions and can show different numbers of colors. But the Web Browsers also have limitations in what colors they can show.

So here I show

  1. A "browser safe" color palette
  2. Netscape's 140 named colors.

1. "Browser Safe" Color Palette

The colors in this "browser safe" color palette are supposed to work in most Web Browsers on most platforms.

Palett...

Lynda Weinman has a full size version of this picture and a page that explains how to use Browser Safe Colors on the Internet.

webcol3 At "My Corner of Passagen" there is a page with "Browser Safe" colors in a table.


2. Netscape's 140 named colors

This table shows Netscape's 140 named colors and their hexadecimal color codes. The named colors are not shown properly (or at all) in all web browsers, so it is safer to use the codes instead of the names. And safer still, to use the websafe colors above.
