    xcolor svgnames X11names trial 003

    This is a prototype of a colour dialogue that has sufficient
functionality to be usable now.



After a few pointers from Stefan (thank you :) ), here is a usable
colour dialogue.

The name pretty well says it all.

Currently to use, a message box will come up with instructions -

Basically choose a  colour by doubleclicking on it, and copying the
colour name to the clipboard (right mouse button).

Then Click the "Ok" button in the colour dialog box, and the colour
name should be inserted in your document.

Will endeavour to add a drop down box later, and other features, and
to add LaTeX colour macros and commands.

A Tw window's status tip reminds the user to make sure that something like -


 - is in their preamble, or elsewhere useful.  ('named' is for future

If you spot any naming or other issues please lets know.
