I think they meant to number the pins from bottom up, and then it is indeed white-green. On T568B, the order is 1 white-orange, 2 orange, 3 white-green, 4 blue, 5 white-blue, 6 green, 7 white-brown, 8 brown. For T568A, pins 1 and 2 from T568B are crossed over to 3 and 6 on T568A, and pins 3 and 6 from T568B to 1 and 2 on T568A. But because it is as is, I also think it is solid brown.

in the 586a, pins 1 and 2 transmit (white/green and green) and pins 3 and 6 receive (white/orange and orange)
