    I need help in coming up with a way to use the colors Green and Yellow I am working on a small site whose colors are Green and Yellow. I have no clue how to make them work. Any suggestions?

    Try and balance things out so that you have green to yellow in a ratio of 3:1, too much yellow and things can look a little over whelming. In my experience it's easier to work with yellow layered upon green as opposed to the other way around.

    So use yellow only for things you want to particularly stick out?

    Yes something like that. I tend to use that colour for things like hyperlinks, rollovers, name plate/logo (if plausable), sub-headings maybe a side column etc. The only danger of this is things might begin to look/feel a little generic, but it's tried and tested.

    I use a similar method when using other vivid powerful colours with ones that are less so. These are only basic guide lines and they don't remain true for every colour or situation. If you do a search for colour ratios you might find more information.

    Red:Blue / 1:3
    orange:Purple / 1:3

    ...but for combinations like red:green you are best to use 1:1 or things won't look as good.
