 Compatible Color Table

 (the 140 colors supported by the main browsers)
On the Web, pages are in "HTML" format. The colours of objects (foreground and background) are stated in hexadecimal format with the Red, Green and Blue values from 0 to 255. This simple utility allows you to modify colours easily.

Some computers, because of their video device and/or of the actual display mode (right-click on the Desktop/Display/Parameters), cannot display more than 256 colours, and in fact show only 216 because Windows uses some of them.
It is recommended to stick to these colours, that is why the default scrolling is set to 51, which means 6 values (in hexa.: 00,33,66,99,CC,FF) for every component (6 ^ 3 = 216).
You can use also the value 64 (40 in hexa), the value 128 (80 in hexa), or half of 256, as well as the value 192 (C0 in hexa): so, silver is worth #C0C0C0 and gray #808080. You will find these last 3 values (64,128,192) in the 28 PAINT's basic colours.
For different values, see the compatible Colors Table.
