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.
