    there are 3 ways to define the color
    1- by name : red, black, green ... and so on
    2- HEX : #000000(for black), #FFFFFF(for white) it takes numbers from 0 to 9 and letters from A to F
    3- RGB : rgb(0,0,0)for black, rgb(255,255,255)for white it takes numbers from 0 to 255

    you can see this

    He's teaching you an old way of doing it... he should have started with semantics and then shown you CSS to style it and make it look pretty.

    id go tell him to read a book on html written over the past 5 years.

    If thats the case then you're going to have to un-learn a lot of what your doing now as it works totally differently

    good luck.

    A lot of your confusion can be removed if you concentrate on what is being told to you, yes you are definitely going to be re-inventing the wheel, just go to ws3schools.com go thru CSS first then HTML you will learn all that there is to it. Even where mohammed got the colors from. All is explained there. Any way great you joined this forum there will always be someone to help you out. Welcome aboard. Remember there are other web tools out there that can teach you the above but stick on to one then you can go thru the others to increase your knowledge.

    this site give you the color HEX
    and you can use this
    this from w3schools

    you only take the color HEX and but it
    HTML Code:
    <div style="width:300px; height:100px; background:#CCCCCC; color:#005599">
    This is simple HTML code
    <br />
    <span style="color:#8B0000; font-weight:bold;">another color</span>
    </div>
