    How do I change the nav menu background color in the Freelance theme?  I’m so confused about #nav li a; #nav li li a and #nav li u.  Thanks.

    The background is set in the #nav rule.

    #nav {
    background: url(images/nav.png);
    width: 960px;
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
    font-size: 16px;
    margin: 0 auto 0;
    padding: 0;
    -moz-border-radius-topleft: 10px;
    -moz-border-radius-topright: 10px;
    -khtml-border-radius: 10px;
    -webkit-border-top-left-radius: 10px;
    -webkit-border-top-right-radius: 10px;
    -webkit-border-bottom-left-radius: 0;
    -webkit-border-bottom-right-radius: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    clear: both;
    }

    I recommend installing the Firebug add on for Firefox or using Chrome’s Firebug Lite which will enable you to right click on any element to inspect it and determine the associated style rules or the selectors required to create new style rules.

    Does #FFFFFF mean white?  I have tried changing this to various colors, but it still shows as a dark grey nav menu bar.  Perhaps I’m not referring to this correctly?  Is the nav menu located where I have:  HOME  -  ABOUT ME   – WRITING SAMPLES?  I’m new to all this, and I want to make sure that I’m referring to the right thing. 

    If by chance I am, the color is not changing for me.  Thanks.

    The color property controls text color. If you want to edit the background then you need to edit the background property.
