for example, would you refer to a particular off-white color as  
"peach puff," "papaya whip," "white smoke," "blanched almond,"  
"bisque,"  .....etc.  These are all included (just the beginning of  
an extensive list) in HYPE's color specifier for Netscape 3.x.   It  
would be helpful to know if these colour names are in some way
