Browser Safe Colors  
  • Well it seems from the previous sections that there are thousands of possible colors for you to choose from.

  • However, in reality, you are greatly limited by the colors that are supported by the browser software, the user's monitor, and all sorts of other little technical issues.

  • Thus, it is best to limit your selection to a group of colors called "browser safe colors" that you can be sure will be represented on everyone's machine in a similar way.

  • These colors are made up of combinations of the hexadecimal values: 00, 33, 66, 99, CC, and FF that are determined mathematically according to cross-platform considerations and that represent 216 possible color hues.

  • This goes for custom graphics as well. Whenever you work with color on the web, take time to make sure that you are working in the browser safe color palette.
