In the early days of HTML before style sheets existed, changing colors was a bit more difficult to do. Most people who designed web pages had no experience with RGB
coloring, so they instead used a feature that is native to HTML, the color words.
There are many different color words built into the old framework of HTML which could be used instead of RGB color. This made things much easier for designers to create web
pages. However, a new problem was added. There are so many color words (worse than a box of crayons), that nobody wants to memorize them all.
But I catalouge this kind of stuff for fun! So here is every HTML color word, and a handly little color selector to allow you to see what they all look like.
