I've never heard colours named like that. What is this in reference to?

In html code black is #000000 and a light grey (web safe) would be #999999 or #cccccc (the lightest).

hi..me neither:) ..thats the problem..ive found out though what the colours represent as rgb values.. but it amazed me to find so few things with google when you search for 'C_BLACK' or 'C_LIGHT_GREY'..these names do exist but i honestly dont know why:)

Ok, for what I've saw the C_ thing is just a definition nothing more, the values are not HEX, and full RGB Normalized values ranging from 0,000 to 1,000.

So C_BLACK = R:000 - G:000 - B:000
and C_LIGHT_GRAY since its values are R:0.75, G:0.75, B:0.75 they are the same as R:191 - G:191 - B:191

I hope this helps

See ya!

thanks a lot..im still not sure i understand though..:)

where did you find out what those values are?...how can i find out what the rgb values are for myself, theres a few more C_ values that i need to 'translate' and id like to kknow how to do that myself.

thanks a lot for your help
