Dear All,

I recently encountered a problem (actually missed some data) because
"white" is one of colours in the "default" palette and that does not
show up to well on my transparent (on white background). Of course it is
easily fixed but I think white should not be a default colour.

> palette("default")

[1] "black"   "red"     "green3"  "blue"    "cyan"    "magenta" "yellow"

[8] "white"

[1] "transparent"
