What makes you think "papaya whip" is a valid color name? I checked the list at http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/htmlguid/colortab.htm and "papayawhip" is a color, but I don't see "papaya whip" I'm marking this WONTFIX. If you find some documentation somewhere that indicates "papaya whip" is valid and what is is defined as, then we can re-open the bug
You're absolutely right - that's not a valid color name (because of the space). I had bad information. It's probably just a weird coincidence that it works in other browsers... marking verified invalid.
