The Browser Safe Palette For Netscape and
Microsoft browsers on PCs and Macs there are 216 colors which can be
displayed on most color monitors without dithering (lots of little dots).
These colors are represented as a 6 X 6 X 6 cube. The axes of the cubes are
not labeled by 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 but by 00, 33, 66, 99, CC, and FF (hex).
There are many good pages on the Internet about this cube. Useful pages are:
