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.
