The color palette used throughout the document.

Color indexes 0 and 1 always correspond to black and white and are not saved in the color table. The first and second RGB values (color indexes 2 and 3) are the default background and foreground colors.

This property is used only in CDX files. In CDXML files, a Color Table object is saved instead.

If this property is absent:

If no color table is present in the object or any of it's ancestors, only the standard color indexes 0 through 3 may be used. In that case, the background color (2) is assumed to be white, and the foreground color (3) is assumed to be black.
