In the style draft, cyan is included as a color name.

In the printing industry, this is a medium-light blue.
On a Macintosh, this is also blue, slightly lighter.
On a Windows machine, "cyan" refers to a very greenish-hued blue.

For style sheets, should cyan be defined as true cyan (i.e., not greenish)?
