I have memorized a few of my favorite color names, such as chartreuse, which is a better green. Use the above list to determine the color name you want. The hex code is also provided. However, these 140 colors may not satisfy your needs. In that case, I have a couple of useful resources. LinkThis is my personal favorite html colorizer. It provides gradients and hex codes, as well as bbcode, for the colors you select. This is an example of what it can do. LinkThis is an intuitive color picker, which can help you find the hex code of a certain pixel on an image. These two resources are basically all you need to create a well colored dispatch! http://html-color-codes.info is another useful site, thank Abhichandra for this useful resource.
Applying color
Color can be applied in 3 primary ways: The [background-block] tag, the [color] tag, and the [background] tag.

Examples:
[color=goldenrod]Goldenrod![/color]
becomes: Goldenrod!
This can be used throughout the site, except on the RMB.

[background=goldenrod]Goldenrod![/background]
becomes: Goldenrod!
This can also be used throughout the site, except on the RMB.

[background-block=goldenrod]Goldenrod![/background-block]
becomes: Goldenrod!

This can also be used throughout the site, except on the RMB.

Alternate Way:
You can also use hex codes to apply custom colors. The hex code for goldenrod is #DAA520. Use

[color=#DAA520][/color]
instead of

[color=goldenrod][/color]
Aaaand... that is all you need to know! If you liked this dispatch, upvote! TG me if you have something to add, questions, or suggestions! You can use these three tags to create headlines, well colored dispatches, and more!
