The problem with the
<colorentry 0 255 255 0>
example is that there is no matching </colorentry> or
</colorentry 0 255 255 0>
Whoah... hang on. WHY is this a problem?
I've always seen these as "commands" and coded accordingly.
If you get a <bold> and then a </bold>, fine. If you get a <bold>
and never encounter the </bold>, still fine. I don't see a
problem with <colorentry 0 255 255 0>, and in fact would much
PREFER it to the alternative. Here, the closing angle bracket
clearly terminates the "command".
