CSS Text


Text Color

The color property is used to set the color of the text. The color is specified by:

  • a color name – like “red”
  • a HEX value – like “#ff0000”
  • an RGB value – like “rgb(255,0,0)”

Look at CSS Color Values for a complete list of possible color values.

The default text color for a page is defined in the body selector.

Example

body {
  color: blue;
}

h1 {
  color: green;
}

Note: For W3C compliant CSS: If you define the color property, you must also define the background-color.

Text Color and Background Color

In this example, we define both the background-color property and the color property:

Example

body {
  background-color: lightgrey;
  color: blue;
}

h1 {
  background-color: black;
  color: white;
}
