Ah, I think I cracked it.
Its literally translating the domain name directly into the bgcolour=""
field of a page.
And the colours we're providing simply aren't in our browsers dictionary.
So ... its interpreting it as hex.
And non hex characters as 0's
blanc -> b0a0c0 -> http://www.color-hex.com/color/b0a0c0
mauve -> 0a00ve0 -> http://www.color-hex.com/color/0a00e0
cream -> c0ea00 -> http://www.color-hex.com/color/c0ea00
Wow. Web standards eh.
