Codepage Extension

Color extensions can increase the total number of characters. Using either RGB or CMYK color extension will cover 1.6 million (364) characters that corresponds to more than ten times the Unicode charset.

RGB(0,0,0)

CMYK% (0,0,0,100)
RGBHEX #000000
RGBDEZ (0,0,0)
HSL (0°,0%,0%)

CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key/Black) is technically used in most printing.

Note

It is not recommended to combine both RGB and CMYK color extensions because of the technical usage.
Doing anyway will end up in more than 78 billion (367) characters in total.
