Web Safe Has Changed

[ LiB ] 



One of the givens of web design is that you must only use a color that's in the web-safe 216-color palette. Only a few short years ago, most computers had basic video cards that only supported 8 bits of color (256 colors). Then it was discovered that to make sure all designs looked the same on Netscape, IE, Macs, and PCs, people had to use a basic set of common colors that worked for all. These colors are the 216 colors that became known as "web safe." If you use these colors, your designs will be viewed the same by everyone on the Net. The problem is that these colors suck, and a majority (94%) of today's monitors are set to display millions of colors. So, it's my recommendation that you open your mind and forget about the standard 216 rule. Flash clings to this palette by setting it as the default. Don't be afraid to create your own custom colors.
