How to use the Tables

The table above shows the Standard Netscape colours displayed eight ways, (colour on white, colour on black, black on colour, white on colour) both using alpha names and hex names. You can check out your browser for Netscape colour compatibility. It shows the Standard Netscape 8.0 alpha names such as "aliceblue" and also the hex, RGB (Red Green Blue) and HSB (Hue Saturation Brightness) values.

Netscape has a set of built-in colour names you can use HTML in the form:

<font color="aliceblue">

For compatibility with other browsers, it would be safer to specify the HTML with the hexadecimal RGB colour names. Netscape Composer automatically converts the colour names to the corresponding hex values:

<font color="#f0f8ff">

You can use the colours in Java with their decimal RGB names:

Color aliceblue = new Color( 240, 248, 255 );

or with their hex names:

Color aliceblue = new Color( 0xf0f8ff );

Depending on how compatible your browser is with Netscape 8.0 and if your video driver supports full colour, these colours may or may not render properly.

Note that Netscape includes support all the colours in the HTML 3.2 standard colour set.

The one-shot Java program Palette that created the HTML tables shown here is available on request. You can see also see the full table in raw ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) text form. You might cannibalise them to support named colours in your Java apps.
