Some suggestions.

Color relationships on a computer monitor are complex and subtle but you may gain some control over the complexities by using the color chart below to create a new background color to fit your needs and then viewing the other colors upon this new color to view their effects. To do this, first SAVE this WEB page onto your computer. Then, you may change the BackGround COLOR (body bgcolor="000000")of this chart to a color of your choice. You may do this by OPENing it in your word processor. In your word processor document, you may change the BODY BGCOLOR command at the top of this page to numbers of your choice; for example to BGCOLOR="123456". Those six numbers are the hexadecimal digits representing your new background color. You may preview the aproximate effect of a new background color by observing its numbers on the chart presented below. The various colors on this charts background color will not look or feel the same as on other background colors. When creating your new background color document choose a new six digit number and insert it into the command line at BGCOLOR="######" and SAVE document with your new background color. Choose a new file-name with a name which represents the your new background color. The name of a document could be BG000000.htm because is suggests its BackGround color is 000000 (which is black). In your word processor you MUST save your new document with a DOS type SAVE and with an HTML extension .htm to be viewed in an Internet browser like Netscape or Explorer. So the final file-name, saved to disk could be named something like the following:
A:\BG000000.htm
A:\BGblack.htm
A:\CC6699.htm for dark-rose.
A:\colors.htm this is the Probaway colors chart name.
After your file is saved open Netscape and under FILE, OPEN its filename. For example, A:\BG000000.htm and view your new color chart. It will look a lot different than this one!

Why do you need this color chart?

Color interactions are vastly variable because there are 16,777,216 possible foreground colors (256 x 256 x 256) and 16,777,216 possible background colors, for a grand total of 281,474,976,710,656 possible color interactions. Yes, that is 281 trillion on just two colors alone. Having created your new color chart you may then see some of the various effects and choose the appropriate colors for your new application more easily.

Some Possible Problems.

If the color chart isn't filled with subtle color variations you have a problem. If you see large chunks of numbers with the same color it is because your monitor settings are for 16 or 256 colors instead of 16 million. If you have a SVGA color monitor and video card you may go to START / SETTINGS / CONTROL PANEL / DISPLAY / and change the setting to HI COLOR or TRUE COLOR.

If your color text numbers do a word-wrap, set a smaller BASEFONT SIZE= number at the top of this .htm document.

If your color text numbers are too small, set a larger BASEFONT SIZE= number.
