Defining Custom Colors

Hexadecimal numbering is another weird computer thing. But actually it is very easy if you take a minute to understand it. Basically, the hexadecimal system starts at zero and counts to F as follows 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F. The process is a lot like counting a deck of cards that goes ACE, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King. Just think of A as being like 10, B being like 11 and so on.
