There's an explanation of what is meant by Web-Safe colors, and how colors in images can be "dithered" when a restricted color palette is in use.
By July 2005, less than 1 percent of the internet population were using 256 color mode (see the stats).
The 4096 color picker uses a range of hex values which can be abbreviated to hex triplets when using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

  Generating Colors in HTML
Colors can be produced for a number of page elements using the color names or RGB hexadecimal codes indicated in each of the samples.
Of interest to UT Web authors/designers: the University of Texas at Austin Visual Guidelines shows #CC5500 as offical "UT burnt orange." It may not appear so on your screen; the wide disparity in color calibration among computer monitors makes it difficult to predict how accurately color will be rendered across the Web.
Colors may also be specified by six-character codes representing their relative red/green/blue (RGB) values, where the possible values for each color component are 00 to FF.

 Color Table
Colors can be specified in HTML pages in two waysby using numbers to denote an RGB color value, or by using a color name.
An RGB color value normally consists of a '#' immediately followed by a triad of two-digit hexadecimal numbers specifying the intensity of the corresponding color: (R)ed, (G)reen, and (B)lue.
For example, the color value #FF0000 is rendered red because the red number is set to its highest value, FF (or 255, in decimal).

 Dan's Web Tips: Colors
Each of these colors is set using a six-digit hexadecimal (base 16) number with the first two digits representing the intensity of red, the next two the intensity of green, and the last two the intensity of blue.
I've actually seen Web pages that did this: usually, they either had nothing but graphics (so the designer didn't think a text color was needed) or they used FONT attributes to set the text color for each section of text.
When choosing colors for non-visited and visited links, remember that the normal standard is for links to be blue when they haven't been visited yet, and either a darker blue or red when they have; if you pick colors greatly divergent from this you're likely to confuse users.

These color values are based upon mathematical values representing 20% increments of RGB (Red Green Blue) values and assigned a hex (hexadecimal) value for Web use.
The colors used on a Web site, especially if the Web site hopes to inspire confidence in potential customers, need to be combinations that are pleasant to look at and work well together regardless of how the monitor and video card render them.

 Color Presentation of Astronomical Images
In the physical and astronomical sense, a color is the ratio of two intensities measured in two different wavelength regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, also called wavelength bands.
The term "false colors" is also used quite often for such representative three color images, whereas I think this is somewhat misleading, because the shown RGB-colors do visualize the physical colors within the used wavelength bands.
If a color image is shown with four or more primaries, it always will be reduced to a smaller gamut (color sub-space) inside the three color space of our eyes (CIE Chromaticity Diagram).

 BrowserSafeColors - dotParagon
In order to maximize the odds of having a web page look the same on different monitors and different browsers, we are limited to 216 colors on the Web.
That being said, colors will still appear different depending on room lighting, depending upon which colors are next to them (or over them), and whether they are being viewed on a PC or Mac or Sun (brightness).
Moreover the same color will appear different to different people, because color is literally in the eye of the beholder.

Color codes in red and caps are also part of the Reallysafe palette.

Perhaps the color would have come out cross-browser with some uniformity but it doesn't address the image issue.
By seeing it for myself again on another monitor I could see that there was a difference but not to the extent that the individual who reported this to me said it was.
Avery good example of this came from a web design firm in California who was kind enough to freely send me a snapshot of the image and what I saw more closely resembled what I was seeing.

 Non-Dithering Colors in Browsers
Mostly, the palette contains far less light and dark colors than I wish it did, and is heavy on highly saturated colors and low on muted, tinted or toned colors.

By eliminating the 40 variable colors, this palette is optimized for cross-platform use.
