Description:
Tk colors for 8.5 and 8.6 are currently documented as identical:

http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/TkCmd/colors.htm
http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.6/TkCmd/colors.htm

However, it was noticed that certain colors differ noticeably between the two releases. This was tracked down to a change made in 8.6 to use HTML aka "web colors" resulting in changes to common existing colors as well as adding some new colors:

http://www.tcl.tk/cgi-bin/tct/tip/403.html

This is not properly documented in the man page for 8.6, which causes unexpected behavior for developers using 8.6.
