	[DJW:]  Judging from what people want round here, a lot
	of people want HTML based intranet applications to be
	indistinguishable from native Windows applications (I'm
	not saying this is a good thing, but a lot of effort tends
	to go into this sort of thing).  From that point of view,
	having system colours is desirable.

	Probably the main reason they are not used is that very few
	people read the specification meaning there is no demand from
	the people who would want them if they knew about them.  If it's
	true that they are poorly implemented, that means that the
	HTML cookbooks won't include them, increasing the level of
	ignorance.
