The following article provides a list of basic color names used in the Colors dialog box. (On the Format menu, click Fill Colors.) In Microsoft Publisher, the names are displayed in a ScreenTip for each color swatch.
NOTE: Some basic colors do not have friendly names (Red, Peach, Pumpkin, etc.) assigned to them. For those colors, the RGB value is displayed in the tip rather than the name.
