Colour Names in Netscape and MSIE


These names can be used instead of numbers in BGCOLOR or TEXT tags. However, they will be dithered in 256 colour definition.
I have discovered a couple of mistakes. Note the English spelling of 'Lightgrey' (what a pleasant surprise!). And, yes, if you had been wondering, there is absolutely no difference between the two colours Aqua and Cyan!
