So apparently, the three letter gre aren't recognised, but any word that's longer than three letters and starts with gre is recognised as light green. I wonder if this was a blunder on the guys who came up w/ the specs for HTML or if there are actually people hired by these guys to come up w/ kinks like this that they can throw into the language to mess with people's minds. (It's diabolically genuis I say!!!!!!)
