    You'll need to PM Griffith. She did mine and I'm still trying to figure out how to do it myself.

    The basic idea is that you need the HEX code for each color (not the name) and put it in for each letter. As Fire Slinger said, Griffith_se is the master but if you do a search either here or in Suggestion you might be able to find a couple posts that spell out how to do it.

    Hey Dennis i thought you were one of the smart kids at our school!:p You can't really make it any easier. At least i don't think you can.

    It is because i lost my scientific calculator and I have to do this Hex crap in my freaking head that has already been damaged by you JONATHAN!!!!!!

    What exactly don't you understand? The color chart? How to do colors in the first place (the ubb code)?

    What is hex? 7th grade math won't help me with this one.

    Did you ever get someone to explain it to you yet?

    If not, hex is basically BASE 16. We usually count in BASE 10.

    base 10 : 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
    base 16: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F

    So the base 10 number 30 in base 16 is 1E (not FF). Why? because like in base 10 you have the ones column, the 10s column, the 100 column, etc, in base 16 you have the 1 column, the 16 column, the 256 column...

    So 16 goes into 30 1 times, hence the 1.
    Remainder 14, hence the E.


    Confused? ;)
