COLOURS OF THE SPECTRUM (x2); codes copied from previous Webpages (when Orange code was copied from book, it looked like Red in one or other browser). 20 Jul 1999: And on my Win 3.1 using Microsoft Internet Explorer, the Orange as below looked very close to Red, not distinct as it was on AOLPress. But, probably early in 2000, when my system was upgraded to Windows 98 and the Browser was updated, the colours all appeared correctly.
993399, FF00FF, 0000FF, 00FF00, FFFF00, FF9933, FF0000, and repeated
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

VARIANT OF COLOURS OF THE SPECTRUM -- OFFICIAL COLOUR NAMES from Martin and Davis, Project Cool ...
In the primitive Windows 3.1 and "Internet Explorer" I had at this time the Violet below was completely invisible! -- jcm 19Aug1999. And, the Orange in IE looked just like the Yellow -- 22Aug1999. SYSTEM UPGRADED TO WIN98 in 2000, and Explorer upgraded early 2000, so all colours now OK in I.E. (N.N. was OK all the time) - jcm 16Jun00
Violet EE82EE, Indigo 4B0082, Blue 0000FF, Green 008000, Yellow FFFF00, Orange FFA500, Red FF0000

Using the Named Colours, to test if your text in a certain colour will be legible on another colour, it is well worth the wait to try them out on the Project Cool™ webpage "HTML Basics: Choosing A Color" at http://www.projectcool.com/developer/reference/color-chart.html   Use a browser that is Javascript enabled.
See the SAFE COLOURS in excol2.htm -- With the Browsers from versions 4 onwards, nearly all colours are "safe."
