If you are building a website then you might find the need for a webpage color chart that shows the color codes so you can change your CSS style sheet. I used to use HTML color charts all the time, however now I build websites using WordPress, and most themes have their own color chart included.
A webpage color chart is still handy in many other cases. For example you might be building a website from scratch using HTML code, or designing a WordPress theme from scratch. There are actually thousands of different colour codes and the shades of just one color can go into the hundreds.
Web page color charts resources
HTML colors are defined using a hexadecimal notation (HEX) for the combination of Red, Green, and Blue color values (RGB).
The lowest value that can be given to one of the light sources is 0 (in HEX: 00). The highest value is 255 (in HEX: FF).
HEX values are specified as 3 pairs of two-digit numbers, starting with a # sign.
