My motivation was for no other reason than to see what the colors
looked like on a web page.

The page shows what DEC used and that was Munsell and/or Ostwald
notation along with one Pantone and a couple paint manufacturers and
colors. That is all documented in DEC Std092. There are many other
color part numbers documented there, but most are references to OEM
customer colors.
