You are correct on both points.  Netscape had used up all of the colors and I had forgotten that X doesn't care about spaces in the color names.  I'm sorry about taking up your time.

I am receiving Undefined color for grey95 and light yellow on
solaris8/intel and Solaris 2.6/sparc when using the help menu --
specifically browsing the info manuals.

These colors are used by the tooltips (a.k.a. ``balloon help''), so the
problem happens when Emacs wants to display a tooltip, e.g., to explain a
menu item.

The X11 rgb.txt file appears to be using "light yellow" instead.

I thought blanks (and letter case) are insignificant in X color names.
Aren't they?

FWIW, I don't have any problems with grey95 and lightyellow on Solaris 2.8.

Is it possible that some other program running on the same system uses up
too many colors, thus preventing Emacs from using them?
