HTML Tutorial » HTML colors, text, background and border

HTML colors are used to give a specific web page design, highlight certain words or paragraphs, a proper contrast, etc.
HTML colors are specified using color name, RGB, HEX, HSL, RGBA and HSLA value.

Syntax:

HTML background color - using inline CSS
<body bgcolor="value">

HTML text color - using inline CSS
<div style="color:value">your text here text color</div>

HTML border color - using inline CSS
<div style="border: value "> your text here </div>

 

HTML background color - using inline CSS - examples

All you have to do is search the table with names and color codes in this lesson, choose one you like and write its name or code in the bgcolor attribute.
Let's have an example: using <body bgcolor="value">.

Example
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title> HTML background color</title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="#CCCCFF">
<h1> HTML background color</h1>
<p>In this lesson you will have color codes at the end of this page </p> <br />
<strong> Here we have a strong Paragraph </strong> <br />
<em> Here we have an italic Paragraph </em> <br />

</body>
</html>
Note: In the above example I used inline CSS, but it is better to avoid and use external CSS
Note: HTML colors supports 140 standard color names.

HTML text color - using inline CSS

To put a text in a certain color can be done in several ways, as:
1. inside a paragraph <p> text here </p>,
2. inside a box <div> text here </div>

Let's have an example using:
<p style="color:value">your text here text color</p>
<div style="color:value">your text here text color</div>

Example
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title> Colored HTML text</title>
</head>

<body>
<h1>Colored HTML text</h1>
<p style="color:green"> your description here colored in green </p>
<div style="color:red"> your description here colored in red </div>
</body>
</html>
