A little note on making words different colors

Just so you know, you can also do colors such as

  • {@ style = color: indigo}indigo
  • {@ style = color: violet}violet
  • {@ style = color: turquoise}turquoise
  • {@ style = color: aqua}aqua
  • {@ style = color: lavender}lavender
  • {@ style = color: magenta}magenta
  • {@ style = color: chartreuse}chartreuse
  • {@ style = color: tan}tan
  • {@ style = color: gold}gold
  • {@ style = color: gray}gray
  • {@ style = color: silver}silver
  • {@ style = color: khaki}khaki
  • {@ style = color: aquamarine}aquamarine
  • {@ style = color: salmon}salmon
  • {@ style = color: crimson}crimson
  • {@ style = color: olive}olive
  • {@ style = color: lime}lime
  • {@ style = color: chocolate}chocolate
  • {@ style = color: goldenrod}goldenrod
  • {@ style = color: teal}teal
  • {@ style = color: coral}coral
  • {@ style = color: fuchsia}fuchsia
  • {@ style = color: maroon}maroon
  • {@ style = color: navy}navy

... and many, many more!

<h1>{@ style = color: salmon}~ Erica Isabelle Harley</h1>


Interesting note:

According to Hyllning, you can create your own color code! If you write:

{ @ style = color : #000000 }**HI** (when you test this, don't use spaces!)

it will look like this:

{@ style = color: #000000}HI

It's black because all the digits are 0. Replace all six digits with different ones and you'll create a totally new color!

<h1>{@ style = color: #737825}See? It's SO cool!</h1>

It's probably not the best idea to actually use some of those, such as lavender or aquamarine, as they can be somewhat difficult to see. Good to know, though! :)

True. You could also use azure or beige, but those are ESPECIALLY hard to see. And don't even get me started on white. :)

Such as here. Everything I've got here is white, and nobody can see it. It's actually rather fun... :) :) :){@style=color:white}

Hint: you can see everything I've said just by highlighting above...it's the one way to view white text.

{@style=color:white;background-color:gray;padding:10px;border:2px outset #555;display:inline-block;}White color can be seen if you will {@style=color:#800;font-weight:normal;text-decoration:underline;}change the background.

Can you put a link to the Formatting Post? It would be easier for people to see what you mean with your own colors. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/12002441
