Part III: Graphics > Designing Graphics with the Web Palette

Chapter 22. Designing Graphics with the Web Palette

The web palette is a set of 216 colors that will not dither on Macs or PCs and is built into all the major browsers (it is discussed in more detail in Chapter 3). When a browser is running on a computer with an 8-bit monitor (capable of displaying only 256 colors at a time), the browser refers to its internal web palette to make up the colors on the page.

If the browser is running on a 24-bit display, the web palette does not come into effect and all colors are displayed accurately. See When Not to Worry About the Web Palette for other instances when the web palette does not apply.
