The problem with color names is not a problem of spelling, but
a problem of following W3C recommendations.

The W3C CSS validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator) reports
(for a CSS 2 profile check):

 Invalid number : background-colorgrey is not a color value : grey 
 Invalid number : background-colorlightgray is not a color value : lightgray 

I think Amaya (a W3C software) should not display a color that the W3C validator rejects.

If these names are accepted in future recommendations, Amaya should support them. 
But the CSS3:color module working draft does not include "grey" or "lightgray".
