Pierre -- you should consider doing this for backward compatibility's sake. I
noticed that hiblue, hiorange,hired (etc) all render in navx, but not gecko.
SHould be an easy fix.

One other note: in all cases we render these illegitimate colors as black, so
they don't show up on this page since the background is black. I've added an
attachment without the black background so you can see we draw the text black.

This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape engineer working 
on this is over-burdened. If you feel this is an error, that you or another known 
resource will be working on this bug, or if it blocks your work in some way -- 
please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.

Yes, it works in IE. a good test page is http://www.timmins.net/greentest.html
It has a blue background with higreen text.
Tested in IE Version 5.00.2920.0000 and in 5.00.3103.1000 SP1
Nothing about this in CSS3: color. Closing WONTFIX.

This is supported as valid in Navigator 0.x-4.x as well as IE... It should be a
simple fix...

Reopening: it is supported in Nav4 and IE.  We should do it in quirks mode.

Closed as WontFix: in fact, 'higreen' and the other 'hi-' colors are not 
implemented in any browser.  Their ascii codes are converted to a RGB value and 
it is just by pure luck that the result of the computation for 'h-i-g-r-e-e-n-' 
is a flashy green color. See the attached testcase.

The complete list of html colors is at
