 24 Bit colour and RC_GRAPHIC

Has anyone used the colours described in HELP XCOLOURS on a 24bit Sun

I've tried things like

    'red' -> rc_window(XtN foreground);

which works just fine on an 8 bit sun, or X terminal or alphastation,
but on a 24 bit sun colour workstation the colours don't work.

Any suggestions?

Should it work?

Or am I doing something too naive?

(I know practically nothing about X, and I don't want to know. I just
want a Pop-11 programmer interface that does all the desirable things
with a graphical window.)

I have used the rclib object oriented-extension to rc_graphic which I
annouced a few days ago to implement a graphical version of the
LIB MSBLOCKS demonstration library (a Winograd-inspired "conversational"
robot). If anyone wants it the code is now in the ftp directory
either in the rctar.gz compressed tar file or the rclib/ directory, as
    rclib/lib/rc_blocks.p and rclib/lib/rc_hand.p
You also need to redefine forevery not to use "instance", which clashes
with objectclass. For this purpose fetch
Even if you are not using my graphical stuff, you may want to fetch
these two if you wish to use objectclass and the pop-11 database.
