> The current set of color names is determined by the Java AWT color names, which are basically
the base 16 colors, plus a few.  The latest web standards build in the X11 colors names, which
are a much larger list (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X11_color_names, and note the differences
between CSS3 and X11).
> I would propose implementing the W3C standards since these are what current web applications
will be using.
> The changes are easy enough (except for the "gray" vs. "grey" spellings and possibly
the X11/CSS3 differences) that I would consider changing it for 2.0.5 except that this is
a spec change that doesn't belong in a bug fix release (unless someone could make a good case
for it).
