color palette files are located in the user's directory:

* on linux $HOME/

They have the .soc extension (IIRC from StarOffice Color)
The standard color palette is then

Every color is an XML element:

<draw:color draw:name="Chart 11" draw:color="#c5000b"/>

* draw:name is the UI name
* draw:color is the color in hex RRGGBB format. 
  So #c5000b is RGB(c5, 00, 0b) == (197, 0, 11)
