Details of other color codes including equivalent web safe and HTML & CSS colors are given in the table below. Also listed are the closest Pantone® (PMS) and RAL colors.

In the web color list used presently, "green" is NOT #00FF00 but #008000. The former hexadecimal code is for the color called lime. This is because the present web list comes from the original 16 color list used in earlier versions of HTML and CSS in which the green and lime were defined as #008000 and #00FF00, respectively.

Web colors are ones that can be used with their English names in HTML and CSS instead of hex or RGB code. They come from the X11 color list in which green/lime has the code #00FF00. Thus, in X11 list green and lime have the same hex code, while in the web color list, green is #008000 (RGB: 0, 128, 0) and lime is #00FF00 (RGB: 0, 255, 0).
