I am using backgrounds and having a wonderful time.  When I started to 
change the color of my text to complement the background I was asked to 
give a hexidecimal# for the shade I want.  Help whaere is the list of 
hexidecimal #s I got a nice shade of blue by accident but there must be 
an easier way.
