I feel like this is such an ignorant question, so please bare with me!

I have been seeing this poping up more and more. Backgrounds that almost look like moving flash files? example:

www.jamesrice.net

When I view source, it's just a hex code: 2C4254 to be exact.

Can someone explain this to me?
How do you find codes for other colors?
I feel so lost, and I know I shouldn't. Educate me!

Thanks,
John

All that is there is this image http://www.jamesrice.net/text.jpg and the rest of the page has the same color background.

Then the page source is this here.
Code:
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>James St. Clair Rice - Web Design &amp; Development</title>
<style>
body{
	background-color:#2C4254;

}
</style>
</head>
Hex
<body>
<table width="100%" height="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  <tr>
    <td align="center" valign="middle"><img src="text.jpg" width="188" height="45"></td>
  </tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>
Lots of programs that have a eye droper that you can use to pick the color and it will give you the color codes.

Like I got FastStone Capture 5.2 that has a "Screen color picker" that will tell you the codes.
Red: 44
Green: 66
Blue: 84
or
Dec: 5521964
or
Hex: 2C4254

For that web site. But all there is at that site is the color code and that one image and no flash.

Yeah, I understand that there is no flash and it is just the color code.

I have begun to think I am just losing my mind, haha.

Perhaps it just has to do with my screen resolution. When viewed on my computer, it has diagonal lines (that seem to be a light gray) that are moving horizontally across the screen. When viewed on a different monitor in the house, it is just a solid blue color. It drives me insane.

I have just decided that it is (of course) just a normal color hex and I drive myself crazy to keep myself busy. haha.

Well you have none your own test on another monitor so I guess that means another PC because it could be your monitor or maybe the video card.

I have a 19" screen at 1024x768 but at that setting it would only effect the image and not the rest of the page that is the same color because it's just code so it will not matter what you setting are. Well maybe if you was at 256 or 16 bit colors you would not see the right color but that would not give you what your seeing.
