Hi,

 

In Swatch Options, there are two warning signs (triangle and cube). 

Can I use the colors with those signs unchecked?

I want to use #ff0000 and #b3b3b3.

Please do just ignore the web safe color warning (the cube). It's been outdated for 20 years.

As for the out of gamut warning: are you going to print these colors? In offset?

The triangle symbol merely means that you would not be able to match that color very well, if at all,  if you wanted to print it using 4 color process (CMYK). Any time you see that symbol it means that the color is outside the gamut of what is possible using process colors.

Thank you (Monika and Bill) very much for your replies. 

 

I am asking that question, while making an EPUB. It's the reason why I chose the RGB mode. 
Taking into account your replies, I think I don't need to be binding to  the triangle symbol (out of gamut warning).
