What RGB value, on your LCD monitor, would roughly approximate midnight blue in ambient sunlight (ie in a room with a window open)? I've got it at rgb(0,2,30) at the moment - fair? Any ideas on direct sunlight?

HTML Code:

<div style="background-color:#000230">Midnight blue.
<br />
<br />
</div>
<div style="background-color:#000000">
Black.
<br />
<br />

(25,25,112) looks even closer to royal blue than it does to navy! Are you just using wikipedia's values? (Yes, I have tried wikipedia. If I were happy with those values, I wouldn't have posted here). I've generated a page referencing example blue/black mixes for members to provide their opinions. You'll have to imagine a worsted wool sheen yourselves: http://sites.google.com/site/soverigntechnical/

0016 is the first one on my screen that is distinguishable from black.

All monitors display colours differently so it will be impossible to find an RGB value that will look the same on every computer...
