Hi all,

I am trying to find a colour for a box that will stand-out within the body of my page which is grey (#CCCCCC).

I think I would like a colour that is about midway between #CCCCCC and WHITE that will be properly viewed by all browsers. Although any other suggestions would be welcome (colour-wise).

I found the colour #EAEAEA which was bout the right colour, but it didn't show up properly in IE6. The reason it has to show exactly properlt is because I need to add graphics to create 'curved' corners to each box, so these little graphics need to have the same colour.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Cheers

How about:

#C0C0C0
or
#D3D3D3
or
#DCDCDC
?
ANother idea might be to go with a darker gray to begin with:

#999999

and use the #CCCCCC for the box?
