For example, the decimal triplet 4, 8, 16 would be represented by the hex digits 04, 08, 10, forming the hex triplet 040810. One byte represents a number in the range 00 to FF (in hexadecimal notation), or 0 to 255 in decimal notation. Conversion between number bases is a common feature of calculators, including both hand-held models and the software calculators bundled with most modern operating systems. There were various attempts to make a "standard" color palette. In computing, on the X Window System, X11 color names are represented in a simple text file, which maps certain strings to RGB color values. It is one of the three primary colors used in the RGB color space along with red and blue. [18] The CSS3.0 specification did not include orange in the "HTML4 color keywords" section, which was renamed as "Basic color keywords". Web colors have an unambiguous colorimetric definition, sRGB, which relates the chromaticities of a particular phosphor set, a given transfer curve, adaptive whitepoint, and viewing conditions. [12] These may be dictated by the hardware or changeable by a "color table". [17], In CSS 2.1, the color 'orange' (one of the 140) was added to the section with the 16 HTML4 colors as a 17th color. Tints are lighter than a base color, shades are darker. Several groups of colors share the same hue and HSL saturation. [1], Color names are not standardized by Xlib or the X11 protocol. [27], CSS also supports the special color transparent, which represents an alpha value of zero; by default, transparent is rendered as an invisible nominal black: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0).[21]. The first versions of Mosaic and Netscape Navigator used the X11 color names as the basis for their color lists, as both started as X Window System applications. The Printer Working Group (PWG) of the IEEE publishes a standard, PWG 5101.1, whose mandatory color names are based upon RFC 3805, successor to RFC 1759 which imported the functional color names other, unknown and transparent alongside seven basic colors from ISO 10175 (DPA) and ISO 10180 (SPDL), and JTAPI. This chart shows selected HTML and X11 colors as well as selected unofficial consensus web colors developed by web designers since 2002. Thus, there are 24 bits used to specify a web color within the sRGB gamut, and 16,777,216 colors that may be so specified. "Snow1" is the same as "Snow". [4] The optional module xorg/app/rgb contains the stand-alone rgb.txt file. That means its brightness in HSB color notation is less than 100%; about 30 of the base colors are fully bright. The table shows component values in several notations of the RGB color space, i.e. When a color is found (e.g., in an image) that is not one available, a different one had to be used. Compare the alphabetical lists in the W3C standards. [1][2] A color is specified according to the intensity of its red, green and blue components, each represented by eight bits. Their hue and saturation are usually the same except for rounding. [9] Some browsers such as Netscape Navigator insisted on an "a" in any "Gray" except for "Light Grey". Unlike base colors, e.g. Even in the current draft for CSS 4.0, dark gray continues to be a lighter shade than gray. David Lehn and Hadley Stern discovered that only 22 of the 216 colors in the web-safe palette are reliably displayed without inconsistent remapping on 16-bit computer displays. [11] The list of names accepted by browsers following W3C standards[12] slightly differs as explained above. Rich maroon [ maroon (X11) ] Color coordinates; Hex triplet: #B03060: sRGB B (r, g, b) (176, 48, 96) HSV (h, s, v) (338°, 73%, 69%) Source: X11 color names#Color name clashes: ISCC–NBS descriptor: Strong red: B: Normalized to [0–255] (byte) RGB, HSL and HSV, conversions are done assuming sRGB color space. These variations are neither supported by popular browsers nor adopted by W3C standards. Several sets, however, feature a Dark variant with 55% brightness and some have their Medium at about 80%. The recommendations they refer to of off-black (0x0A0A0A) on off-white (0xFFFFE5) and black (0x000000) on creme (0xFAFAC8) have contrast ratios of 11.7:1 and 20.3:1 respectively. Digital Color Imaging Handbook By Gaurav Sharma. Enhanced accessibility requires contrast ratios greater than 7:1. Some pairs of colors share the same lightness and hue. Wherever possible, the values are the same as in the W3C adaptation of the X11 list, except for Turquoise which is   instead of  . [4] These have been chosen to be similar to many real-world monitors and viewing conditions, in order to allow rendering to be fairly close to the specified values even without color management. CadetBlue3. Web-based tools specifically for converting color values are also available. The list of colors shipped with the X11 product varies between implementations and clashes with certain of the HTML names such as green. The "web-safe" colors do not all have standard names, but each can be specified by an RGB triplet: each component (red, green, and blue) takes one of the six values from the following table (out of the 256 possible values available for each component in full 24-bit color). A color tool or other graphics software is often used to generate color values. Buff and Mustard are completely new color names. The hex triplet is obtained by concatenating the six hexadecimal digits together, 2468A0 in this example. The shades are apparently defined by the formula GrayN := round(N% × 255) resulting in e.g. X11 colors are defined as simple RGB (hence, no particular color space), rather than sRGB. A particular browser may not recognize all of these colors, but as of 2005, all modern, general-use, graphical browsers support the full list of colors. The present W3C list is a superset of the 16 “VGA colors” defined in HTML 3.2 and CSS level 1. X11 color names, HTML/CSS: ISCC–NBS descriptor: Vivid yellowish green: B: Normalized to [0–255] (byte) The color defined as green in the RGB color model, displayed on the right, is the brightest possible green that can be reproduced on a computer screen, and is the color named green in X11. The following chart presents the standardized X11 color names from the source code. This enables web authors to style their content in line with the operating system of the user agent.
