Steps to reproduce

  1. Type any text in ckEditor4.5.6

  5. P.S. We have changed color definition from SPAN to FONT using below code

config.colorButton_foreStyle = {

element: 'font', attributes: { 'color': '#(color)' }


Expected result

<font style="color: #000000">Hello</font>

Summary: Font color - Using RGB format instead of HEX[IE] Use color HEX format instead of RGB for colorpicker
Type: BugNew Feature
Version: 4.5.6

The color representation using RGB is valid representation, same as HEX, so it is more like a feature request.

While in Blink and FF HEX is used, IE for some reason uses RGB so to keep color representation consistent, HEX should be also used in IE.
