• 

The strings in the left-most column are the commonly used HTML color names. The lower case names in the middle column are the colors used in early versions of Maple, and they are retained for backward compatibility. In some cases (Blue, White, Yellow) the RGB value is the same, but in others (Maroon, Gold) it is quite different.

• 

Internally the plot routines convert these color names to RGB values. For example, YellowGreen is converted to COLOURRGB,0.60392157,0.80392157,0.19607843.

Examples

plotsin,color=SteelBlue

plotcos,color=Burlywood
