136 browser colors with names

Some Web page creators prefer to specify colors by name rather than by hexadecimal red-green-blue (RGB) intensity value.

Some Web page creators prefer to specify colors by name rather than by hexadecimal red-green-blue (RGB) intensity value. The following table shows 136 colors with names that are recognized by most Web browsers. The table includes a swatch of the color, the color name, and the corresponding hexadecimal RGB value. Your operating system and the computer platform you are running may vary the exact color of each swatch. If no colors appear in the table, you may have a browser that does not support background color within table cells.

Many of these colors are not among the 216-color browser-safe palette. If you use them, you'll need to test how they look on the Netscape and Microsoft browsers on both Mac and Windows platforms (since colors outside the 216 browser-safe palette may use dithering in a way that you don't like).
