Web Standard Color Names

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has listed 16 valid color names for HTML and CSS: Aqua, Black, Blue, Fuchsia, Gray, Green, Lime, Maroon, Navy, Olive, Purple, Red, Silver, Teal, White, and Yellow.

Note: Different browsers may display different colors for the same color name. “Green” can be lighter in one browser than another. To achieve the same result in all browsers, always use the HEX values.

The table below provides a list of the 140 color names and Windows’ system colors that are supported by all major browsers even though most of the names are not a part of the W3C web standard. If you want valid HTML or CSS, use the HEX values instead.

Web Safe Colors?

Some years ago, when computers supported max 256 different colors, a list of 216 “Web Safe Colors” was suggested as a Web standard, reserving the other 40 colors. The reason for this was that the Microsoft and Mac operating systems used 40 for fixed system colors (about 20 each).

The 216 cross-browser color palette was created to ensure that all computers would display the colors correctly when running a 256 color palette.

This is not important today, since most computers can display millions of different colors. Anyway, here is the list:
