This template can be used to specify the foreground color of a span of text. Acceptable values are RGB hex codes, e.g. #C9E72A, or any of the web colors: red, blue, green, moccasin, darkorchid, etc. To set the background color of a span of text, use {{background color}}.


  • {{Color|name of color or hex code of color|Text}}

For example:

  • {{Color|red|Hello, world!}} Hello, world!
  • {{Color|#00F000|Hello, world!}} Hello, world!

If the second parameter is omitted, the color value is displayed as text:

  • {{Color|#00F000}} #00F000
  • {{Color|red}} red

Performance considerations[deasaich]

The template generates an HTML span tag:

<span style="color:{{{1}}}">{{{2}}}</span>

It runs at speeds in excess of 700 per second, and so is functionally identical to using the HTML markup directly.
