A comment for the MWBP guidelines 3.7 Default Delivery Context [1]. Under
Colors it says:

    "Web safe.

     (A Web safe color is one that has Red/Green/Blue components
     chosen only from the values 0, 51, 102, 153, 204, and 255.)"

The definition looks good but usage of the phrase "Web safe" doesn't always
match the definition. Maybe the spec could say "216 colors" instead of Web
safe (the 216 are the 6x6x6 cube that is part of some popular 8-bit video
palettes). Chris Lilley, copied on this mail, may or may not have a moment to
correct me there.
