#44: How can I convert a color value into in HTML format?

If you want to create a HTML-file, you must define a tag for font color or backgroubd color. But you can't insert a Delphi's TColor value - you must convert the color into RGB-format. In own SMExport suite I use the next

function GetHTMLColor(cl: TColor; IsBackColor: Boolean): string;
var rgbColor: TColorRef;
  if IsBackColor then
    Result := 'bg'
    Result := '';
  rgbColor := ColorToRGB(cl);
  Result := Result + 'color="#' + Format('%.2x%.2x%.2x',
                                             GetBValue(rgbColor)]) + '"';
