I believe this is document is a little misleading. I just tried this, and it worked perfectly:

   Rainbow
   {
       #ff0000 #ffff00 0 42
       #ffff00 #00ff00 43 85
       #00ff00 #00ffff 86 127
       #00ffff #0000ff 128 170
       #0000ff #ff00ff 171 212
       #ff00ff #ff0000 213 255
   Console:
       #ff0000 #ffff00 0 42
       #ffff00 #00ff00 43 85
       #00ff00 #00ffff 86 127
       #00ffff #0000ff 128 170
       #0000ff #ff00ff 171 212
       #ff00ff #ff0000 213 255
   }

It shows that the "regular" and "console" syntaxes as defined in this document can be used interchangeably. However, I do not want to arbitrarily edit something like this in, without some sort of confirmation from a dev that it is actually supported (well it is definitely programmed in, obviously) and will work in future ZDoom versions. I am concerned that the static definition here may be too constricting for people who want or need more customized gradients. Though, since it's only text, I guess it's not really that much of a concern. If you want, I don't care if my example above is simplified (most likely it would be by a lot), but I think it's better for the end-user to know, that's just my opinion.
