In addition, a number of colors are defined by web browsers. A particular browser may not recognize all of these colors, but as of 2005 all modern general-use browsers support the full list. Many of these colors are from the list of X11 color names distributed with the X Window System. These colors were standardized by SVG 1.0, and are accepted by SVG Full user agents. They are not part of SVG Tiny.
Almost the exact same color names are used in .NET Framework, in the KnownColor and Color enumerations. The only color difference is DarkSeaGreen which is defined as 8F,BC,8B (instead of 8F,BC,8F).

Color is a great tool for helping to make your wiki stand out as well as better match your wiki's topic and theme.
Color can be added to your wiki in a couple of different places. You can add a unique color in the theme designer to customize your look or add color to your wiki's templates.
The most common way to define a color is to use its name or hex code. To use a particular color, take the name or hex code below and add it where appropriate. If for example you want to add it as a button color in the theme designer, copy over the hex code of that color, and add it to the input field on the customize tab.
There are two main types of colors that are preferred, HTML and X11 color names.
