#abcdef HTML / CSS Code Examples

#abcdef foreground

Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

Andy Warhol
<p style="color: #abcdef">…</p>

#abcdef background

Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.

Georgia O'Keeffe
<p style="background-color: #abcdef">…</p>

#abcdef shadow

To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.

Schumann
<p style="text-shadow: 0.1em 0.1em 0.15em #abcdef">…</p>
