List of html colour names and hexadecimal codes

Lit of HTML color names and their hexadecimal codes

Internet Explorer introduced 16 HTML colour names. Netscape made this list longer and now we have 140 HTML colour names. Most of these names are not in the web safe palette, but this is okay since majority of Internet users nowadays have monitors that can display higher colour depths.

I prefer using hexadecimal colour codes as they give me a finer control, but I guess for a beginner, the HTML colour names are very helpful as they are descriptive.

The HTML color names along with their hexadecimal codes are given in the list below. Here is a detailed list of HTML color names along with equivalent web safe colors.

Fact

The layout of the popular QWERTY keyboard is actually not user-friendly. The keyboard was designed by Christopher Latham Sholes primarily to prevent jamming in typewriters during sessions of fast typing. Though in all modern operating systems, alternatives like the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard exist, they haven't been able to gain a substantial following. The Dvorak layout uses less finger motion which, as is claimed, results in faster typing speeds, lesser errors and decreased incidence of repetitive strain injuries. The Dvorak keyboard was designed, patented and promoted by August Dvorak and his brother-in-law, Dr. William Dealey. A well-known user of the Dvorak keyboard is Matt Mullenweg, the co-creator of the world's most popular content management system, WordPress. [more...]
