Hexadecimal Color Chart

Web Safe, or Browser Safe palettes as they are also referred to, consist of 216 colors that display solid, non-dithered, and consistent on any computer monitor, or web browser, capable of displaying at least 8-bit color (256 colors). The reason why this palette contains only 216 colors, instead of the maximum 256 colors, is that only 216 out of the basic 256 colors will display the same on all computers.

Sample HTML code for changing colors:

<BODY BGCOLOR="#rrggbb">  set the background color
<FONT COLOR="#rrggbb">    set the font color
<TD BGCOLOR="#rrggbb">    set background color of a table cell

Gray shades:
