In HTML 4.01, the language used for web browsers since 1999, there are 16 named colors: black, gray, silver, white, red, maroon, purple, fuchsia, green, lime, olive, yellow, gold, orange, blue, navy, teal, and aqua. Since 2004, more modern browsers have supported 140 named colors, which are shown in this Demonstration. With your mouse arrow, hover over a particular color to see its name.
