{{Note|Colors for applications that use the X libraries may be specified in many different ways.  Some colors can be specified by assigned names.  If {{Pkg|emacs}} or {{Pkg|vim}} has been installed, you can examine {{ic|/usr/share/emacs/24.2/etc/rgb.txt}} or {{ic|/usr/share/vim/vim73/rgb.txt}} to view the list of color names with their decimal RGB values.
Colors may also be specified using hexadecimal RGB values, with the format {{ic|rgb:RR/GG/BB}}, or the older and not encouraged syntax {{ic|#RRGGBB}}.  The color {{ic|PapayaWhip}} is the same as {{ic|rgb:ff/ef/d5}}, which is the same as {{ic|#ffefd5}}.
See '''man(7) X, '''from {{Pkg|xorg-docs}}, for a more complete description of color syntax.}}
