: Interesting... so HTML uses 729 colors, with R-G-B variables ranging from 0 to 8 (or 00 to FF, respectively), which is basically a 9-variable range. That's unconventional, since the variable range of a video color palette is usually a power of 2, making the composite palette resolution a power of 2 as well as a perfect cube:

Actually, HTML allows for 16777216 (256^3) colors

Each color, red, green, or blue, is represented by two hexadecimal digits, and each digit can be one of 16 values (0123456789ABCDEF). Each color can therefore have 256 different values.

I looked for a page that actually shows ALL colors possible with HTML, but didn't find one. It would be big.
