Table 3-2. Numeric RGB Equivalents for Common Colors

Now let's talk about top and bottom padding. In theory, an inline element with a background color and padding could have the background extend above and below the element. Figure 7-61 gives us some idea of what that might lookface exists, but there is no defined Oblique face -- the useragent may not substitute the former for the latter, according to theCSS specification. Finally, the user agent can simply generate theoblique face by computing a slanted version of the upright font. Infact, this is what most often happens in a digital world, whereit's fairly easy to slant a font using a simple computation.

Furthermore, you may find that in some operating systems, a givenfont that has been declared to be italic mayswitch from being italic to oblique depending on the actual size of
