Hexadecimal Difference

Recommended Posts

I've searched for this but you'd be surprised how many times the words hex and hexadecimal are used... so if this has been asked, though I've never seen it, my apologies.

I'm using Paint.NET to create a webpage. I need the background color of the page to match that of my image. So, I figured I would just copy it from the color window. Ok, that looks pretty good! Oh wait...

Is there a reason my browser (IE7) and Paint.NET's hex codes display the colors a slight bit differently...?

EDIT: The hex Paint.NET gives when editing the picture is different from that of the picture in the browser that I screenshotted. I fixed the problem, but I'd still like to know why this is happening.
