Pantone is an industrial design company that uses a wide variety of colours. Pantone uses its own numbering system to identify colours; its colour list is its own intellectual property. Because Pantone colour numbers are standard, oftentimes people will request certain colours for a website based on Pantone colours. Because web pages read colours in red, green and blue (RGB), these requested Pantone numbers must be converted to RGB.
