[Owasp-antisamy] inline style problem

What regular expression are you using and where are you putting it?

There are two regular expressions in the default Antisamy policy and neither
of them permit #000 by default.

The first is colorNameOrCode and the second is cssColor. For stylesheets,
the one you want to change is cssColor.

Having two regular expressions like this is kind of confusing though - we'll
look into improving that.
