With color names, you can only choose from the 140 ones given here: color names. For styling, we need more freedom.
To get a specific colour, we can mix the 3 primary colours
Blue in different proportions. This way, we can create any colour that we require.
For example, look at the code given below:
h1 has a text color of Orange because we mixed red with an intensity of 255, green with an intensity of 165 and blue with an intensity of 0.
p element with
id one has text color gray because in the rgb code, we have all three colors with an intensity of 128.
Each parameter takes a value ranging from 0 to 255,
0 being least intensity and
255 being highest intensity.
