Great work @kymber :)
Another good one is the yfonts package. A friend of mine used it in his thesis to emphasize the chapters. The syntax goes like this: \yinipar{<letter of your choice>} , unfortunately it doesn't work here.
You're most welcome. I think most people wouldn't use it for science but actually i love it for giving my scripts some edge :)

I'm certainly not your student, Snuggie. Not sure where you got that idea.
\(\Huge \color{aqua}{\cal{LOL ~Kymber...}}\)
I'm pretty sure @ParthKohli was the one who showed me LaTeX, actually... and @shruti LaTeX works in questions and responses on OpenStudy and you can download programs to use it on your computer if you wanted. I don't know of any other sites that support it.
I learned from snuggie ... And you i learned more fonts and colors from u .Snuggie taught me how to change colors and fonts and how to set it up
oh...i thought you were one of mine...well...ok...
does'nt i works on Other sites ? @Kymber
@shruti , that may be because , other sites may have not installed these packages on their sites.
btw, can you name those "Other sites" ?
okay thanks! @mathslover
You missed a few colors
Are you guys still curious about what you can do? If you would like you can go to: http://latex-project.org/guides/usrguide.tex It is a rather dry read but you can learn a lot of commands to use on this site!
This one is not so dry but it is more recent. I don't know if the team has kept up with the most recent \(\LaTeX\) versions but if they have this will be helpful. this is one of the pages i refer to a lot. http://latex-project.org/guides/fntguide.pdf

What colours did I miss, care to share?
Try ones that I missed. They're probably not included in my tutorial here because they don't work.
you missed about 16 million colors xD http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/51b0e7f9e4b05b167ed2e8fe
The ones with names are easier to remember
Not if you understand how the Hexadecimal code works. If you understand the layout you can make any color you want with only swapping a number @kyber Names are for wimps when you've got millions of codes and all you have to do is find the sequencing. When you learn that you can create any color you want with only the typing of a couple of memorized number letter mixtures that all follow each other in a specific order that once you get it is dumbly easy.
\(\huge\color{Cyan}{16~MILLION~COLORS~YO~!!}\)
@kymber why do you write "\(\color{red}{\huge\tt{T}}" emphazizing on the "\tt{T}}"?
The double t and the double }
double t = \tt = a font double } is to close the color tag, though it's unnecessary as you can write it as `\huge\tt\color{red}T`
Ah ok much less confusing thanks thom :)
You need to put your words in brackets if you want to write more. `\(\huge\tt\color{red}Tomatoes\)` will give you \(\huge\tt\color{red}Tomatoes\). So then you can do `\(\color{red}{\huge\tt{Tomatoes}}\)` for \(\color{red}{\huge\tt{Tomatoes}}\). As far as I know. Parth taught me that.
Yea my explanatin only works when you use 1 character. Like in this code: `\(\color{red}{\huge\tt{T}}\color{orange}{\huge\tt{r}}\color{gold}{\huge\tt{y}}\) \(\color{forestgreen}{\huge\tt{t}}\color{teal}{\huge\tt{h}}\color{blue}{\huge\tt{i}}\color{blueviolet}{\huge\tt{s}}\)` You can reduce it to: `\(\huge\tt\color{red}T\color{orange}r\color{gold}y~\color{forestgreen}t\color{teal}h\color{blue}i\color{blueviolet}s\)` \(\huge\tt\color{red}T\color{orange}r\color{gold}y~\color{forestgreen}t\color{teal}h\color{blue}i\color{blueviolet}s\)
Math lesson 1: Do you know why there are 16 million possible color combinations? Answer: These colors are written in hexadecimal, where we use letters A-F and 0-9. Now A-F is like 6 letters and 0-9 is 10 different numbers. So there are 16 total characters in hex. Hey, now you have six letters in hex to make a color, like \(\rm \color{red}{FF0000}\) or \(\color{#C00}{C00000}\). So there are \(16×16×16×16×16×16≈16,000,000\) colors.
actualy it's 16,777,216 :P
That's why I wrote \(\approx\)
i know, but let's not further spoil the comments :P
@kymber Very helpful. Thanks.
Wow. I didn't see this earlier. So just to be clear, I can use hex code that I use in CSS in LATEX?
Now what about RGBA?
BTW really awesome tut @kymber
Awesome tutorial!!
