Click on a color to display its system palette number and RGB value on the top line of your window. Use the 'Back' button to return. Download free Timestream Colors for the real thing!


Non-dithering Netscape Palette Chart and Values

This powerful and exhaustively complete chart of the 216 non-dithering colors and the system colors that make up the 256 8-bit Netscape Windows and Macintosh palettes is at palette.html and is useful for Web page developers who wish to avoid strangely-dithered background colors and images. This chart includes Macintosh and Windows system palette numbers for Director and SuperCard developers. Download a free version of Timestream Colors for a handy Web page color designing tool.

Netscape's Special Color Names and Values

A list of more than 100 color names accepted by Netscape in lieu of the familiar Hex triplets is at ns3names.html. Some users may find it easier to use, for example, 'darkorange' than 'FF8C00' when describing the color of text and backgrounds in their HTML pages. Along with each color name is a swatch of color, its Hex triplet, its RGB value, and the closest approximation of that named color to a color in the Netscape non-dithering palette with its Hex and RGB values. In addition, the palette number of that color is provided for Macromedia Director's Macintosh and Windows system palettes and for SuperCard's Macintosh system palette. You need Navigator 3.0 to see the color swatches (this HTML document uses the BGCOLOR= attribute of the <TABLE> tag); if you are running Navigator 2.0, you will still see the text of the entire table. Navigator may run a bit slowly while it calculates colors and processes this large table.


Custom Netscape Palettes for use with Photoshop and other image editing applications -- these custom palettes contain the 216 non-dithering colors and the additional 40 system colors supported by the Netscape Navigator browser. When you convert your images to .gif format using Photoshop, load this palette during mode change and your image will be WYSIWYG on all platforms running Netscape Navigator. Only one type of Windows palette file need be in the 'palettes' directory; take your pick. How to use a custom palette in Photoshop is explained here.

Custom CLUT (Color Look-Up Table) for Macintosh (put in 'Color Palettes' folder)
