    - All these methods of specifying colours support the major browsers.

    Hexadecimal Colours
    - These colour values are supported in all major browsers.

    - It is specified with: #RRGGBB, where the RR (red), GG (green) and BB (blue) hexadecimal integers specify the components of the colour. All values must be between 00 and FF.

    RGB Colours
    - It is specified with: rgb(red, green, blue). Each parameter (red, green, and blue) defines the intensity of the color and can be an integer between 0 and 255.

    - Example, the rgb(0,0,255) value is rendered as blue, because the blue parameter is set to its highest value (255) and the others are set to 0.

    Colour Names
    - There are 140 standard colour names which are supported by all major browsers.
