Color Naming Conventions and Standards

Only 16 of the color names are standardized (see the discussion of color in HTML at the W3C). The other two hundred or so color names recognized by modern browsers are not standardized... but we find them useful anyway, at least by comparison to the hexadecimal color codes. Hence we offer this chart -- organized by hue -- in an attempt to approach such a standard. However, this is only a draft, not the final word.

Here's how we developed it. First, we derived the names and hexadecimal values from Netscape's now-defunct HTML manual (alas, the link's gone dead.)

Second, we charted the colors with Paint Shop Pro's palette editor and sorter. This process conflated a few colors and codes, but we have cleaned up the list as best we could.

Thousands of color names have been invented yet there is no definitive list that we've been able to find. We hope this chart brings us a step closer.

We hope you find it useful. Better yet, improve it and
