Details

The HSL color 270°, 3%, 11% is a dark color, and the websafe version is hex 000000. A complement of this color would be 90°, 3%, 11%, and the grayscale version is 0°, 0%, 11%.

A 20% lighter version of the original color is 90°, 1%, 28%, and 0°, 0%, 0% is the 20% darker color. If you saturate the color by 10%, you get 90°, 9%, 10%, and if you desaturate by 10%, it is 270°, 2%, 12%.

CSS Examples


The CSS property to change the color of the text to HSL 270°, 3%, 11% is called "color". The color property can be set on classes, ids or directly on the HTML element .text, #text, p{ color:hsl(270, 3%, 11%) }.

This example shows how text in the color hsl(270, 3%, 11%) looks like.

If you want to add a text shadow in that color use .shadow{ text-shadow: 4px 4px 2px hsl(270, 3%, 11%) }.

Here you see how black text with a 4 pixel hsl(270, 3%, 11%) colored shadow looks like.

Border

This example shows the color as border, it can be applied via the CSS property "border" or "border-color".

The CSS property to change the border of an element to HSL 270°, 3%, 11% is called "border". The border property can be set on classes, ids or directly on the HTML element .border, #border, table{ border:4px solid hsl(270, 3%, 11%) }.

If only the border color should be changed .border{ border-color:hsl(270, 3%, 11%) } can be used.

Here you see how a box with a 4 pixel hsl(270, 3%, 11%) colored shadow looks like.

If you want to add a box shadow in that color use .boxshadow{ -moz-box-shadow:4px 4px 4px 4px hsl(270, 3%, 11%); -webkit-box-shadow:4px 4px 4px 4px hsl(270, 3%, 11%); box-shadow:4px 4px 4px 4px hsl(270, 3%, 11%) }.

Background

The CSS property to change the background color of an element to HSL 270°, 3%, 11% is called "background". The background property can be set on classes, ids or directly on the HTML element .background, #background, body{ background:hsl(270, 3%, 11%) }.

If only the background color should be changed .background{ background-color:hsl(270, 3%, 11%) } can be used.

This example shows the color as background, it is applied via the CSS property "background".

How-to use Converting Colors

To convert, paste a string in one of these color formats, for example, "1C1B1D", into the input field and click on convert. The result will be in the section Color Conversions, and the following sections will provide you with further details on the color.

Some color formats use the same notation, and the conversion will guess the composition of the search query. As an example, if you try to convert the string "270°, 6%, 11%" it could be an HSV or HSL color, the conversion will assume HSL in this case.

As this could lead to wrong conversions, you can define which format you are passing by wrapping your color string in brackets with the format in front. The search string "HSV(270°, 6%, 11%)" will give you the correct HSV color as there is no need to guess the format. Other examples would be "CIELAB(10.02, 0.83, -1.02)", "CIELCH(10, 1.320, 309.226)", "YXY(1.1292, 0.3098, 0.3188)" and "CMYK(0.03, 0.06, 0.00, 0.89)".
