 +===== Adding more named colors =====
 +
 +=== Question ===
 +
 +The named colors in CSS are fairly arbitrary and incomplete. Could we add a better system of named colors? Or could we add these specific named colors?
 +
 +
 +=== Answer ===
 +
 +No.
 +
 +== more details ==
 +
 +The built-in set of named colors in CSS is weird and bad, and we keep them mainly for legacy interop reasons. There'​s very little utility to adding to a set of colors where you have to look up the proper spelling and remember what actual colors the names map to.
 +
 +Naming colors can be done in stylesheets using custom properties. It is not likely we will ever add more names to the built-in set.
