It is advisable that you use the line BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF", so that your page
will look nice also to people who view it with images turned
off in their browsers, as already explained.
In this example, FFFFFF is the Hex
value for the color white.
Every color has a corresponding Hex value (which is the "language" for colors that browsers understand).
You can find these values here at HomePage MadeEasy. Just copy the one that corresponds to the color you wish, and past it in the appropriate place, within your HTML code.
When you copy the value for the color you wish to use as the background color for your page, just please substitute
the original FFFFFF in the string above given, and you are all set!:)
HTML Code for Text and Link Colors:
The parts of the above given code containing the word LINK control the
color for the links on your page:
LINK = regular link (the way it normally looks on the page)
VLINK = visited link (the way it looks after someone has clicked on
the URL which that link offers)
ALINK = active link (the way it looks as it is being activated)
The part of the above given code containing the word TEXT controls the
color of the text on your page:
TEXT="#000000" (here the text color is black)
Now you can look once more at our color chart on line, and choose colors for all the above, then substitute the color values on the code that we have initially provided you, above, and paste the result directly inside the HTML code for your homepage!:)
All of the above, and more, but no need to deal with HTML coding!
