CSS Examples

🎓 If you want to learn the different color notations in CSS, you can have a look at the booklet HOWCOLORS.WORK – A CSS color notation guide.

Text

The CSS property to change the color of the text to Yxy 0.0000, 1.0000, 0.0000 is called "color". The color property can be set on classes, ids or directly on the HTML element.

This example shows how text in the color rgb(0, 0, 0) looks like.

.text, #text, p{color:rgb(0, 0, 0)}
📋 Copy Code

If you want to add a text shadow in that color use the text-shadow property, you can generate a text shadow directly with our 🔧 CSS Text Shadow Generator.

Here you see how black text with a 4 pixel rgb(0, 0, 0) colored shadow looks like.

.shadow{ text-shadow: 4px 4px 2px rgb(0, 0, 0) } 
📋 Copy Code

Border

The CSS property to change the border of an element to Yxy 0.0000, 1.0000, 0.0000 is called "border". The border property can be set on classes, ids or directly on the HTML element.

.border, #border, table{ border:4px solid rgb(0, 0, 0) }

If only the border color should be changed use the property border-color.

.border{ border-color:rgb(0, 0, 0) }
📋 Copy Code

If you want to add a box shadow in that color use:

Here you see how a box with a 4 pixel rgb(0, 0, 0) colored shadow looks like.

.boxshadow{ -moz-box-shadow:4px 4px 4px 4px rgb(0, 0, 0); -webkit-box-shadow:4px 4px 4px 4px rgb(0, 0, 0); box-shadow:4px 4px 4px 4px rgb(0, 0, 0) }

How-to use Converting Colors

To convert, paste a string in one of these color formats, for example, "000000", into the input field and click on convert. The result will be in the section 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 "0°, 0%, 0%" 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(0°, 0%, 0%)" will give you the correct HSV color as there is no need to guess the format. Other examples would be "CIELAB(0.00, 0.00, 0.00)", "CIELCH(0, 0.000, 0.000)", "YXY(0.0000, 1.0000, 0.0000)" and "CMYK(0.00, 0.00, 0.00, 1.00)".
