Overview

The Color Box in the Second Site toolbar helps you determine what color you want to use for a particular stylesheet property. It also validates color names, should you choose to use them.

When you click on a stylesheet color property, Second Site sets the color of the Color Box to the color indicated by the value of the property and sets the text to the hexadecimal code for the color, for example, "#FFFFFF" for "white". If Second Site does not recognize the color, the Color Box will be black, and the text will be "Invalid".

Second Site recognizes the color names in the table below. When you key one of the names into a stylesheet color property, Second Site will display the color in the toolbar color box along with the color code shown in the table. These color names and values are not standard in either the HTML 4.01 specification or the CSS1 specification, but Second Site will convert the color name to the value shown in the table when it creates the stylesheets for the site.

When the Color Box is visible, you may use the Color Picker to edit the property. Choose Edit > Open Editor... or press [F7] to open the Color Picker.

For help choosing colors for your site, you may be interested in the Color Scheme Designer by Petr Stanicek.
