Hexadecimal Color Codes:
Selected Named Colors

This is one of six pages of our hexadecimal color values reference for Web authors. There is also a second set of pastel colors, there are free background textures in the HTML section, a page of named selected colors, a color picker tool, and non-dithering color value charts.
Return to the Hexadecimal Color Values Reference main page to view the color picker tool and to link to the other pages of this expanded hexadecimal color reference.


The Original Windows 3.2 COLORS

These named colors can still be used today. The following table displays the original 16 colors that were available to Web authors using HTML tags on Windows 3.2 platforms. A Web author's choice with the 16 color limitation was to code with just the name, or by using the octothorp (#) with the hexidecimal color code, such as "#C0C0C0".
Example:  COLOR="silver"   OR COLOR="#COCOCO"
