The following article provides a list of basic color names used in the Colors dialog box. (With a drawing object selected, point to Fill Color, then click More Colors on the Format menu.) In Microsoft Publisher, the names are displayed in a ScreenTip for each color swatch.
NOTE: Some basic colors do not have friendly names (red, emerald, avocado, and so on) assigned to them. For those colors, the RGB value is displayed in the tip rather than the name.
Colors with assigned names are listed in the following table. Colors that are defined in terms of their RGB values are not listed here.
