Usage

Guts: <span style="background: {{{2}}}; color: {{{1}}}">{{{3}}}</span>

Sets foreground and background colors of a given text. They can be specified by name or in the format #dddddd (RGB hex triplet).

Unless in the case of personal use on a user page, use this template with great caution:

  • a poor contrast may make the text difficult or impossible to read
  • the contrast can be experienced as even poorer in the case of color blindness
  • links have a color according to user settings; they become invisible if this color is equal to the background color.
