You can create any color you want, in OpenOffice.org. I love this feature. Choose Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Colors. Then click Edit and in the window that appears. Double-click in the left hand square of colors, then refine it in the right side. You can also just type in the RGB or CMYK values you want.
Click OK, then click Add and name the color what you want. The color will show up in all color selection lists in OpenOffice.org.
