Explanation

If you use HTML to format your pages you may find the following list of codes and names of use in adding color either to "boxes", tables, and even fonts. Colors are grouped (sort of) by broad color class (eg, "Blue").

This particular list includes colors that have had names assigned to them. They give a decent selection to choose from, but if you want greater control over the color, using HexCodes gives you more choices. You may note that some of the color names are not really obvious, ("chocolate" looks more like "peanut butter" to me) and some pale colors, such as "AliceBlue" may not be markedly different from plain old "white".

Yellow

Most of these colors are variants pink, and shades of white. There are only a few colors that I'd really describe as "yellow". Many are not readily distinguishable from each other.

Test area

This table gives a "side-by-side" comparison between the results of using the "hexcode" and using the "color name". If there's any difference I can't see it.
