SVG color codes and names

I am continuing to publish my remastered cribs that should be useful not only for designers and dev guys. My previous crib was about 16 color codes and names. And this submission is going to be dedicated to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) color names. Feel free to bookmark it for your future reference, as it is not only SFW it could be H[elp]FW.

It is not known who originally compiled the list. The list does not show a continuity either in selected color values or in color names, and many color triplets have multiple names. Despite this, graphic designers and others got used to them, making it practically impossible to introduce a different list. In some applications multipart names are written with spaces, in others joined together, often in camel case

In addition, a number of colors are defined by web browsers. Many of these colors are from the list of X11 color names distributed with the X Window System. These colors were standardized by SVG 1.0, and are accepted by SVG Full user agents; they are not part of SVG Tiny.
