Chapter 8. Working with Color and Images Using CSS

Chapter 8. Working with Color and Images Using CSS

Color is one area where CSS has long been our friend. Because color is determined by a combination of the computer's hardware capabilities, the operating system, and the browser, we've been able to use CSS to color backgrounds and text since relatively early in the life of style sheets. Here you'll learn to apply color to page backgrounds and element backgrounds, and even spice up tables with color.

Color options in CSS are more numerous than what was available to us in HTML. In CSS, you can choose among hexadecimal color, hexadecimal shorthand color, RGB color, color percentages, and the 17 color names supported by CSS 2.1.
