aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive,
purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow. (And system colors like
ActiveBorder, ActiveCaption etc., but they do not refer to any fixed
colors but to colors that depend on the system and its settings, like the
Windows theme.)

Ref.: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/syndata.html#color-units

It's the same sixteen colors as in HTML specifications.
(CSS 2.1 proposal adds 'orange', for no good reason.)
