It does, it does BUT: I just found out that [named]{Green} does not give 
the same color as just {green} which gives a somewhat transparent color 
while [named]{Green} is a bit muddy.

It would seem that {green} uses another palette but I don't know how to 
find it. The LaTeX Companion 2ed says almost nothing about color.

Hopeful regards
