HTML behind the BG/FG color samples

The "BG/FG color sample" is made by changing both the background and foreground colors. The background is changed with

	<... BGCOLOR="#xxxxxx" ...>

and foreground is changed with

	<FONT COLOR="#xxxxxx">

In these "xxxxxx" is the six hex digit of the color, such as 2F4F2F for Dark Green.

You will see a solid block of color in the samples shown if your browser supports both markups; or just "### SAMPLE ###" in color if just one is supported. (Almost all support both now.)

The Problem with Metallic Colors

Several times folks have written asking what the codes are for a metallic color, such as gold, silver, or copper. It is my understanding that these tones cannot be depicted with an RGB code because they are not composed of a single basic color: Several different shades are mingled to produce a shiny-metal look. The mingling of shades requires the use of a GIF, JPG or other image; it could be used as a background. If my understanding of this is a misunderstanding then I'd greatly apprecate enlightment.

Here are some attempts to make a metal color with just RGB, as depected at Netscape at http://www.netscape.com/colorindex.html

These metallics are, IMHO, lame. Anyone who happens to have samples of metalic looking GIFs that I might use for an example here are urged to email me.

A potential chrome metallic is ..chrome.gif, but unfortunately the image doesn't wrap properly (the edges show when used as a background).

Another metalic ripplechrome.gif also falls short of my expectations but it wraps perfectly and looks cool. (So I'm using it as my screen background :-)

My exact idea of good metallic rendering is found at .. chrome-icons.gif. Unfortunately this image is of the word "Icon" spelled out in chrome, so it cannot be used as a background.

Another metalic example is this "brushed aluminum"; the same site also has unconvincing examples of "grey aluminum" and "corrugated metal".

Printing This Page in Color

The default settings of some browsers is to not print background colors or images, which means the color sample column will just contain "SAMPLE" printed over and over again. You can turn on the background color/image printing as follows:

Firefox: Click File -> PageSetup -> Format_&_Options, then check "Print Background (colors & images)".
Netscape Navigator: Same as for Firefox.
MS Internet Explorer Click Tools -> Internet_Options -> Advanced, then scroll down (about half the list) to "Printing" and check "Print background colors and images".

For other browsers it will be something like one of the three above, if you can't find it, email me and I'll give it a shot.

There is a version of this document without the background image at http://web.njit.edu/~walsh/rgb_nobg.

Credits

This is a composite of several color name sources, which are indicated by letters in the "Credits" column of the table as follows:

Credit Source
X Denotes colors named in MIT's Xconsortum red/green/blue (RGB) color specifications, Xconsortum version 10.41, 1994.
N Denotes colors named in Netscape's beta 1.1 "Colors" table located at colorindex.html. The document seems to contain some odd errors, which are tagged [sic] in chart.
M Denotes colors named in Microsoft documents [not yet complete]
V VGA colors. According to http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/Style: "These 16 colors are defined in HTML 3.2 and 4.01 and correspond to the basic VGA set on PCs. Most browsers accept a wider set of color names but use of these is not recommended." Unfortunatly this advice has been flummoxed by differences between the Xconsortum, Netscape, and Microsoft uses: Not all all have documented the use of what color is provided, or the documentation disagrees about what color is presented. For instance, "green" and "lime" above have different values!
F The colors of the Free Speech flag, which I have taken the liberty of naming Free Speech {Green, Aquamarine, Magenta, Blue, Grey, Red} as of 10-May-2007. The flag does not contain red for some reason, so please also see the colors swatch provided by Tim Jarrett in his JarretHouseNorth blog.
[none] Unnamed colors provided for use of the CSS shortcut example (Please inform me if this color is named someplace.)

Some duplicate and contradictory cases exist because of the multiple sources. When sources provided only decimal or hex values, I computed the missing values. The first version of this document was in 1995 or 1996. Thanks to Kenji Mikasa for the idea of using BG/FG samples in 1996.
