Using the Excel Color Palette on the Web
If you’ve used the Web a lot, you’ve probably found that some pages that appear perfectly
normal in one browser are a mess in another browser. Whether the spacing is off, the text is
larger in some paragraphs than in others, or the colors are different, you just don’t get what
you expect. Part of the difficulty can be traced to older Web browsers that don’t understand the
newer markup tags, but another reason is that some programs, such as Microsoft FrontPage,
tend to create code that is interpreted perfectly by Microsoft Internet Explorer but less well by
other browsers. Colors are no different from other HTML formatting instructions, so you
need to know what can cause the errors and how to avoid them.
Beginning with Internet Explorer 4.0, there has been a list of named colors with associated
RGB color values that the browser knows how to interpret. Not all browsers know how to
interpret the names of the colors, but every major browser is able to interpret RGB color
values. Table 10-4 lists the standard HTML colors and their associated RGB values so that you
can add them to your Excel color palette if you want to create a workbook that looks good
both in print and on the Web.
For more information on how these colors will look on your monitor, see the full-color table on MSDN,
