ST_ColorType (Color Type)

This simple type specifies a color. Colors are specified in one of three ways - named color, hexadecimal RGB or color palette entry. An optional index may be stored in square brackets following the color and a space. [Rationale: An application might store the color's index in a system color palette using this means. end rationale]

A named color is specified using the name of the color. The following named colors are supported:

Black (#000000)

Silver (#C0C0C0)

Gray (#808080)

White (#FFFFFF)

Maroon (#800000)

Red (#FF0000)

Purple (#800080)

Fuchsia (#FF00FF)

Green (#008000)

Lime (#00FF00)

Olive (#808000)

Yellow (#FFFF00)

Navy (#000080)

Blue (#0000FF)

Teal (#008080)

Aqua (#00FFFF)


<... color="red" ... >

end example]

Hexadecimal RGB is specified using a hash symbol (#) followed by six hexadecimal characters, where each pair represents the red, green and blue component of the color.


< ... color="#5f2726" ... >

end example]

A color palette entry is specified using the name of the color in the palette.


<... color="buttonFace [67]" ... >
