Hi,

Bug 1

Amaya displays strange colors when the name of the colors in the 
CSS file begins with light-, medium- or pale-. 
For example:
h1 { background-color: light-yellow; }
p { background-color: light-blue; }

Bug 2 (not so sure)

Amaya displays "grey" color like "gray" and "lightgray" color like "lightgrey" 
but the correct names are only "gray" and "lightgrey", aren't they?

"grey" and "lightgray" values are shown by Amaya and Mozilla, but are not shown 
by Internet Explorer.

Suggestion 1

If incorrect names are written in a style attribute (for example, background-color: foofoo;),
a warning message (Invalid color value "foofoo") is shown in the parsing error view.
But this message is displayed only the first time the attribute is set. If the document is
saved and reopened, the message is not displayed.

Could the parsing that detects the error be included in every opening or saving of a XHTML 
document (or a CSS file)?
