This details the 140 possible discrete named colors supported by the Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer (when employing Style Sheets). Colors sourrounded by a pair of * characters are also supported by Internet Explorer for all elements that support coloring. It should be noted that, these color names are not necessairily supported by other browsers and their display would be unreliable, unless the #rrggbb value is used instead.

Some of the above text as well as the below color names and hex codes are borrowed from The HTML Reference Library Version 3.0 by Stephen Le Hunte.

The background color script came from Web-Development.Com.

The below input form allows you to vary the background color of the document and view all of the supported color names as text.

Enter the six-character hex code for the desired background in the box below and then click on "Set background".
