RGB to Color Name Mapping
(Triplet and Hex)

This is a composite of MIT's Xconsortum red/green/blue (RGB) color specifications, Xconsortum version 10.41, 1994. See other credits below.

Please click here for copyright and copying policy.

The color table has been roughly divided up into shades. Select one of these: Black and Gray; Blue; Brown; Gray; Green; Orange; Red; Violet; White; Yellow; to jump to that division.

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

Please click here to see why metalic looking colors do not appear here. Some other sources are listed also.

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://home1.netscape.com/home/bg/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 http://isd.cme.nist.gov/graphics/backgrounds/chrome.gif, but unfortunately the image doesn't wrap properly (the edges show when used as a background).

Another metalic http://www.space.net.au/~jooste/art/others/backgrounds/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 http://userpages.nkn.net/userpages-3d/chrome-icons.gif. Unfortunately this image is of the word "Icon" spelled out in chrome, so it cannot be used as a background.
