Alan et al -
I think it was working - I made a mistake in the color tuple and since  
I saw that error with the .sty file, I assumed that was the problem  
(hence the "default" comment - I thought it just went to some backup  
theme and ignoring my file).

So, now we come to what was my real problem: does anyone know a good  
applet to help me translate my desired color into an rgb tuple? :)
