This is not accurate. The OpenType GDEF table specification does not
include a property for colour; rather, the 'mark' property has been used by
MS Office in order, optionally, to colour diacritic marks, e.g. in Arabic,
in a different colour from the letters. This is a hack employed by MS, and
is not a requirement of any rendering software.
