HTML Hexcolors :

For some reason colors in HTML are specified using hexadecimal numbers.

Hexadecimal numbers are numbers based on the value of 16 rather than the classical numbers based on the value of 10.

When you count to 15 using hexadecimal numbers it goes like this: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F

As you see the numbers from 10 to 15 have been replaced with letters.

A typical hexadecimal color value would be A53C8D.
