Ok i know this sounds naff but i want to use the colours Gold and Silver in Word and elsewhere. Does anyone know the 3 rgb numbers for these colours? I cant find them specifically available on the usual windows colour pallettes.

You'll be dissapointed with what you can produce using an rgb pallette for gold and silver, they aren't made up of one single colour and so your best of trying to google an image of gold and using it as a texture for things such as word art.

Could you use something like Xara 3D to produce a sample. This programme has lighting effects which can enhance an otherwise flat colour.

De Marcus™ is right about the lack of texture.
If you want a metallic background it has to be a pattern involving shades from deep dark shadows to burned out highlights.
This sort of thing can be conjoured up as a 'fill' from the more heavyweight vector programs or sheer ingenuity and lots of time.

Heavyweight software is definitely the best way to get deep, saturated metallic colours, however your average photo editing programme can do the job also, to show you how easy it is, i dug up a program I haven't used in many moons with a built in wizard for reproducing these textures in a jpeg format (micrografix PP8),

now granted they aren't the most realistic renditions but that takes time, skill and more often than not a good understanding of the program in hand. It all depends on how far you want to go, and because it's for general words docs and 'elsewhere' I'd imagine it's not very. With that in mind this program click here is freeware and very useful for the casual text editors out there.
