CSS Color Names

In this chapter we will speak about colors.

At first let's see the 7 simple colors of html. Usually colors are displayed combining RED, GREEN, and BLUE.

CSS colors are defined using a hexadecimal (hex) notation for the combination of Red, Green, and Blue color values (RGB). The lowest value which can be given to one of the light sources is 0 (hex 00). The highest value is 255 (hex FF).

Hex values are written as 6 digit numbers, starting with a # sign.
