Does anyone have any clue why? Did I miss something on craigslist on this?

The colors I've tried that don't work are as follows:

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What does "will not render properly" mean? Color is wrong, dithered, blank, or what? – Sparky672 Jul 25 '11 at 22:01
What do you mean by they don't render properly? Can you show us an example? – rlb.usa Jul 25 '11 at 22:01
I think this question belongs on Web Apps. – rlb.usa Jul 25 '11 at 22:04
Despite your claim that they all include "F", #E1CC81 does not include any "F". – Sparky672 Jul 25 '11 at 22:07
Try using the color names instead of the HEX values, e.g.: {color:red;} – Alex Jul 26 '11 at 10:09

If you check out the CraigsList Help Page, it tells you that it only supports a select ten colors.

(Supported colors: black, blue, fuchsia, green, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, teal.)
