Color Spot Tables: tables of color swatches and color codes used in HTML and CSS

Hue, Saturation, and Light Color Codes

This page demonstrates the hue, saturation, and light (HSL) representation of color of the 147 colors defined by the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Specification. This type of color representation is of the form hsl(H, S%, L%), where H is the hue measured in degrees of the color circle ranging from 0 to 360 (red = 0°; green = 120°; blue = 240°). S is the saturation percent (100% full saturation, 0% is a shade of gray); L is the lightness percent (100% is white, 0% is black, 50% is 'normal'). This is just one of the ways you can define colors in HTML attributes and in Cascading Style Sheets; you can use a quick reference table to help you choose from among the many color tables available.

NOTE: Not all Web browsers will show colors using HSL. The Mozilla Web browser shows colors defined by this method; as of August 2004, Microsoft Internet Explorer does not.

Note that there are 147 color names, but not that many distinct colors, as some name variants are given for the same color values--grey (spelled with "e") and gray (spelled with "a") are both listed here for the same color. Also, there are repetitions for magenta and fuchsia.

Color swatches are defined by using the HSL code for the color and are sorted by the HSL code.

You can see the meaning of the labels (Safe 16 SVG Hex3) on the Color Spot table of tables.
