Browser Color Display

The following colors are displayed as a test of the browser colors. Each color can be entered into the font tag as text. Multiple words are combined when used in the tag. (Example: steel blue would be steelblue.) Also, the colors can be added by their Hex Triplet Equivalents.

Based upon my review of Explorer and Netscape browsers (older versions) most of the colors are fairly accurate. This page is used to check how a particular browser will display colors. The sixteen basic colors are usually the most certain.
