How do I match the theme color in table background?

Hello everyone, 

I am wondering if I can find out the exact color - or code - used by the theme colors so that I can use it to match it in a table background in the article.

Related question: Can I change the font-color inside a table? (Assuming I will have to alter the html.)

Why do I want to do this? I want to insert some quotes that will stand out in the article and will span across the width of the page. Also to double as a break for a lot of text. I am thinking a single-celled table will do the trick.

Is there any other way to accomplish this? Any ideas and don't and don'ts even from the design perspective?

Thanks in advance. 

B.

I don't know but I'm looking forward to the answer, the capabilities here are amazing, I've never had so many options at a revenue sharing site.  Loving it, Great Question!  

Note, There is that code module as well, what can be done with that...?

Bhavesh - I'll leave the answer up to Anne or Simon.

Katie - In the code module you can display code for demonstration purposes.

Bhavesh - As far as I can tell, there's no way to alter font colour.  I've just experimentally tried it in the HTML source option, but the live version just changes it back to black.

You can change the size of the font though. It's in the paragraph pull-down menu.  Maybe you could insert your quotations in larger text instead?

Katiem2 - If you want to see the code module in action, I used it here. (Scroll down just a little bit, as it's inserted in the middle of the text.)

Bavesh, yes you can do that. You can change the font color, background, etc. Even you can match the color with the official Wizzley colors. You can use Wizzley textures too as backgrounds. See these 2 pages where you can get some clues:

Hope, those help...

Katie -

You are right. The capability is amazing here and balanced beautifully with the need to make the pages fast-loading - just what we need, I think, in the new age of the Internet.

Thanks Achim, as always, to your super-fast response. I was wondering about the code module, too. I had though it was a place to insert live code!

JoHarrington, Using larger text is a good idea. Will try that. I had also tried to change it with html and found it changing back or not taking effect.

Almirah, Exactly what I was looking for - thanks! I have taken a quick look at your pages and I will be sure to go back and spend more time. At a first glance, I did not see gold. Could you add it to page or post the code here? (Or did I miss it?) I will appreciate it.

Best,

Bhavesh.

Almirah, you are amazing! Just what I was looking for! These tutorials really deserve an editors choice in my opinion. I guess, if I wanted to change the headings of a module, I would just need to increase its size in normal text and change the color with html as you have shown, correct? Or is there any way to change the font color in the module headings directly?

No, you can't change the font size of the module headings, only its font type and color using the available buttons provided on the right of your page editor. What you've seen in those mentioned pages above is for text area (content), not for the headings.
