named color values

Hi folks,

I have found language in the CSS2 spec 
( about named color 
values (you know, our friends aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green 
etc.), but observe that the tools I'm testing apparently support a bigger 
set, the one that includes the more exotic gainsboro, lightpink and so 
forth. Forgive my ignorance, but does HTML4.0 or CSS define this larger set 
(and if so, where)? Having a complete list of this set with their numeric 
values would be ideal. Are they a requirement for SVG support?

BTW, great work getting to PR!
