Custom Text Colors?
« on: August 10, 2009, 11:20:34 PM »
I've seen The Bamboo Forest and The Ancient Warrior use some silver/gray type of text in their fanfics. But there isn't any silver/gray in the Font color drop-down box. Do they just like make a new set of tags or is there some way to do this?

So does that mean I can insert any color on that list and have it show up?

I believe so...

But another thing you can do is use hex codes, which are six-digit codes that specify an exact color from about 16 million options. These are a tad difficult to explain, but if you want the full scoop, I'll give it to you. Here are a few examples, in any case...

[code]The first two digits are for red, and FF is the highest number; therefore, this text will be red.[/quote]
The first two digits are for red, and FF is the highest number; therefore, this text will be red.

[code]The third and fourth digits are for green content. But when it comes to light, red plus green makes yellow. Therefore, this text will be yellow.[/quote]
The third and fourth digits are for green content. But when it comes to light, red plus green makes yellow. Therefore, this text will be yellow.

[code]The fifth and sixth digits define blue content, but here I set it to about half of its maximum. This should make dark blue text.[/quote]

[code]This color is relatively strong in green, but is unsaturated. If I'm right, this should be an ugly pale green-yellow color.[/quote]
