HTML colors

Colors





To use colors in HTML using color names, color codes, and different styling methods, you can follow these approaches :


Inline Styles

Inline styles are applied directly to individual HTML elements using the style attribute. To set colors using inline styles, you can use color names or hexadecimal color codes.

Color Name:


    <p style="color: red;">This is red text.</p>

Hexadecimal Color Code:


    <p style="color: #FF0000;">This is red text using a color code.</p>

Embedded Styles

Embedded styles are defined within the <head> section of an HTML document using the <style> tag. You can define classes or IDs for elements and apply colors to them.

Color Name:


    <head>
  <style>
    .red-text {
      color: red;
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <p class="red-text">This is red text.</p>
</body>

Hexadecimal Color Code:


    <head>
  <style>
    .red-text {
      color: #FF0000;
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <p class="red-text">This is red text using a color code.</p>
</body>

External Stylesheets

External stylesheets are defined in separate CSS files and linked to the HTML document using the <link> tag within the <head> section. You can define classes or IDs in the CSS file and apply colors to them.

Color Name: [ In styles.css file ]


    .red-text {
  color: red;
}

In your HTML file :


    <head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
</head>
<body>
  <p class="red-text">This is red text.</p>
</body>

Hexadecimal Color Code: [ In styles.css file ]


    .red-text {
  color: #FF0000;
}

In your HTML file:


    <head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
</head>
<body>
  <p class="red-text">This is red text using a color code.</p>
