One of the most commonly used term or acronym in the world of color 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, color, graphic, and hyperlink effects on World Wide Web pages. HTML color names are another way to style your content in CSS, and can often be easier to understand. You can use a color name in the same way as a Hex color code, setting it as the value for the CSS color property in your stylesheet.
Adding color to your website using HTML is actually really simple. The most common way of coloring HTML text is by using hexadecimal color codes (Hex code for short). Simply add a style attribute to the text element you want to color – a paragraph in the example below – and use the color property with your Hex code.
Another way to color your website’s text is by using an HTML color 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 color you want to use (red in our example). HTML color names are often more legible than their Hex code counterparts and can be used in much the same fashion. Replace the Hex color code with the HTML color 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.
