Once in a awhile, more often than not, I will run into a situation, such as when working on my website, and need to adjust the color of this background or that font. There are usually toggle switches that allow me to move up and down and all around color palettes. As I do this, the html for the colors changes. Unless you jot down that sequence of numbers and letters, you may not be able to duplicate the color exactly as you move from page to page, or project to project. Heck, what if you just want black, or white, or a true red. How do you know what identification code to use?
I accidentally stumbled across a site that I found helpful and enlightening.
Html Color Codes not only gives you the basics on the color codes and how to use them, but also provides tools for finding the color codes on your website, blogs, etc. It will even give you the code for hues in IMAGES! What if you are color blind? The site gives you the names and codes for a variety of colors across the color spectrum. It also gives you the codes for colors that are the same across the web no matter what browser you are using. Kinda cool, huh?
