 mIRC has 16 colours, which Pidgin supports.

 But in automatically saved log (html format), some colour values contain
 spaces and are not recognised by modern browsers.

 These colours include:
 light blue,
 dark blue,
 light green,
 dark green,
 light grey,
 dark grey

 <span style='color: dark green; background: light
 Correct value should be without the spaces.
 <span style='color: darkgreen; background: lightgrey;'>blahblahblah</span>

 Since the colour cannot be recognised, they are not displayed when viewing
 the log in Firefox, Chrome, or IE (9), only Pidgin's built-in log browser
 would shows the correct colour.
