One of the most commonly used term or acronym in the world of colour picker applications is CSS or cascading style sheets.
Another term is Hypertext Markup Language or HTML. It is a standardized system for tagging text files to achieve font, colour, graphics, and hyperlink effects on World Wide Web pages. HTML colour names are another way to style your content in CSS, and can often be easier to understand. You can use a colour name in the same way as a Hex colour code, setting it as the value for the CSS colour property in your stylesheet.
Adding colour to your website using HTML is actually really simple. The most common way of colouring HTML text is by using hexadecimal colour codes (Hex code for short). Simply add a style attribute to the text element you want to colour – a paragraph in the example below – and use the colour property with your Hex code.
Another way to colour your website’s text is by using an HTML colour name, and there are 140 of them. The HTML code is similar, just replace the Hex code from the previous step with the name of the colour you want to use (red in our example). HTML colour names are often more legible than their Hex code counterparts and can be used in much the same fashion. Replace the Hex colour code with the HTML colour name from the previous example and voila, your code is ultra clear.
Coloring HTML links can be a great way to distinguish them from your regular text or add a bit of flair to your website.
