When is a color not a color

A single integer is also true with "1" is a color also. The dictionary says
if it sees an integer it returns true to maintain compatibility with
supercard. Methinks the matching is still a bit loose. Works fine with hex
designation though.

put "#ffffff" is a color returns true as expected, and put "#gggggg"
returns false also as expected. So, avoid integers and use hex format to
bipass the issue.
