    Web Safe Colors

    Is it still important to use the 256 web-safe colors for web pages or can most browsers see a wider range of colors these days?

    Re: Web Safe Colors

    You're pretty safe using whatever colour you like, but if it makes no difference then you might as well use a web-safe colour just to be sure. I sometimes try the nearest web-safe colour to the one I want first and see what it looks like. If it's okay I use it. If not, well it's not really a big deal.

    Short answer: Only a very very small percentage of your viewers will have any problem seeing whatever colours you throw at them.
