Want to create a web page colourful with HTML?

If you have already tried some kind of software that are used to create a web page then you must have meet with colour codes. In software like Dream weaver, Flash or even Microsoft front-page colours are defined in a little bit different fashion. There are some assembles of numbers and characters to define a particular colour. These are HTML versions of colour. If you want to master yourself in artistic and colourful web page designing then you must get familiar with these codes and their significance. If you are serious about learning then it should not be that hard to grasp the formula of the colour codes.

You may know one thing very well that there are three original colours- red, green and blue. Rest of the colours are combination of these three originals. HTML colours are defined using a hexadecimal (hex) notation for the combination of Red, Green, and Blue colour values. Hex values are written as 3 double-digit numbers, starting with a ‘#’ sign. The lowest value that can be given to one of the colour is 0, which is written as ‘# 00’. The highest value is 255, written as ‘# FF’. So each of the colour can combine with other two having value from zero to 255.

So, total number of possible colours can be derived by multiplying 255, three times. That gives a total of more than 16 million different colours to play with. Most of the computers can now display millions of different colours. To have the desired colour on your web page all you have to do is just put the correct code according to the value of original three colours. Most website makers provide such simple colour tools in their interface. You can have a look at a few of them here: http://www.freewebsitemaker.co.uk/category/reviewed-website-builders”
