Video: Understanding color on the Web

This 6½-minute video summarizes the major color systems discussed in the tutorial, with emphasis on developing pages with accessible contrast between text and background. It also shows the use of the previous page's demo functions, and the "mini selector" linked from that page.

There are "do-it-yourself" versions of the video's HSL and RGB discussions on our Using HSL and Using RGB pages. Likewise, the video discussion of using the models together is done with our Demo page, and the section on contrast development is from an earlier version of our "mini" color picker, linked in two ways from the same demo page.
