No matter what color code I use it does not represent the correct color. I have even created a new blank page but my banner #0000FF turns out lite green. I have rewritten just about every facet of my CSS with no change. Any suggestions? It is driving me mad. Everything else on my three websites work fine. sad.gif

No way to tell if you don't show us the page or code.

Here's the snippet of code:

<div align="center" valign="middle" style="font-family: arapey, tahoma, arial, courier new; font-size: 400%;">
<bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><font color="#0000FF;">
<i><strong>The Society of Esseans International</strong></i>
</font></font>
</div>

Does this help?

Not really, by itself this works fine, but there must be something else causing the problem.
Do you have a URL or all the rest of the code?

If it isn't yet another HTML5 addition I have missed there is no element BGCOLOR. That's why it doesn't work. It doesn't exist.

BGCOLOR is an old and deprecated attribute that can be used with BODY and table elements. Today we use CSS instead and it can be used with any element.

Beside other inconsistencies in the snippet, the FONT tag is deprecated too, already in HTML 4.
And for the record, the #0000FF is a this blue color.

Funny, you're right that 0000FF should be blue, but when I put the OPs code in an editor and display it the font is actually 3EFF00

Oops, I guess that's what the misplaced semicolon in the FONT COLOR will do.

Because of the semicolon probably. '#0000FF;' isn't a proper HTML color value. I guess you get a funny color for the same reason you would with any other seventh character.
