HTML Hexcolors :

Screen colors are defined by the colors Red, Green and Blue.

Therefore it is smart that HTML colors are defined in a system based on the amount of each of the three basic colors.

This system is called an RGB color system.
(Yes, - RGB stands for Red, Green and Blue!)

Most graphics tools (Photoshop, Photopaint, Paintshop Pro etc.) can handle colors in a RGB color system.

The problem is that while most graphics programs define the RGB code using normal decimal numbers, HTML defines them with hexadecimal numbers.

This means, that you have to convert between decimal and hexadecimal numbers if you want to use the same color in your graphics program and on your homepage.

We will explain the technique for this soon, but first, we will explain how RGB codes are written in HTML...
