Figure 1 -Part of the WebSafe Color Table

There is a list of 216 colors (6 Red x 6 Green x 6 Blue)which are called WebSafe. These colors are guaranteed to display and in the right hue on any web browser. The browser image on the left shows a partial listing of the WebSafe colors.

This Cold Fusion sample execise will produce the table shown of those WebSafe colors. In the process, developers will see an example of nested for-loops and HTML table construction.

Creating tables in Cold Fusion is essential for smart formatting of output. This example shows the logical grouping - the table declaration occurs outside all the loops - then each cell is done at the inner-most loop, and the row declarations are done at the second most inner loop. Finally, the Table is closed off at the end of all the loops. Get used to this template, it will occur over and over again in your Cold Fusion coding.
