hex color values for real words

when coding websites, you assign color by a six-digit hex value. This value can have the following numbers/letters: A, B, C, D, E, F, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0. So a piece of code for to color this text looks like this: color="#AA3399". Seeing that you can use letters A to F, you can spell words with them. Like color="#DECADE".

Here’s all the six-letter english words that can be spelled with those letters and what their hex color looks like.

this is an interesting experiment! all the “words” are made of light colors, because the “letter” part of the hex codes come at the “white” end of the scale [white is FFFFFF, and black is 000000″>. so we’ve got pastels here.
