   Both HTML and Chime scripting language use RGB hexadecimal values to define colors. Use this handy table to look up the exact hex codes used in the DRuMS color schemes. Or download the entire DRuMS package, including a cascading style sheet for HTML, a set of scripts for Chime, and instructions on their proper use.

*Many of the codes for html have been darkened, relative to the codes for Chime, for better visibility on a white background. Note that Chime uses a range of values darker than the base RGB hex code in order to shade for depth. Therefore the codes for html are a good visual match to the 'average' value used by Chime. If you use a black background, use the "Codes for Chime" in your HTML instead of the Codes for HTML given here for a white background.
