    Boxes color/ I'm dazed

    OK I installed a javascript for a faq page. I have been able to get all the colors and sizes right until just about now. I can't get the boxes that display the answers and questions to turn from white to my greyish color, or the font inside it.
    Heres the code
    Code:
    <center>
    <form name=faqform>
    <table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=5>
    <tr bgcolor="#444444">	
    <td align=center><font face="verdana,arial" size="-1" color="C4C4C4">
    <b><font color="#C4C4C4">Coders World</font></b></font></td>
    </tr>
    <tr bgcolor="#383838"><td><font face="verdana,arial" size="-1" color="#C4C4C4"><br>
    Browse the Frequently Asked Questions below and click for the answer.
    <p>
    <ul><select size=5 name=question onChange="javascript:showFAQ(this.form);">
    <option value="Look at the Announcement in coders forum. ">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;-->&nbsp;&nbsp;How do I sign up to be a team member?
    <option value="Yes, as long as you are willing to learn. We will always need help with the small things as well as the big things.">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;-->&nbsp;&nbsp;I have a very limited knowledge of computer programing. Can I still sign up?
    <option value="Any regular member of coders forum is eligible to receive out programs for free.">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;-->&nbsp;&nbsp;How do I obtain one of the coding teams programs?
    <option value="You can join the coding team and help us produce programs, or just spread the word and invite your friends. ">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;-->&nbsp;&nbsp;I really enjoy coders forum and want to help out. How can I?
    </select>
    </ul>
    <p>
    And Their Answers:
    <p>
    <ul>
    <textarea name="answer" rows=5 cols=40 wrap=virtual></textarea>
    </ul>
    </font>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </form>
    </center>
    I can't get the black font inside the white boxes to change colors, or the box itself. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,


    Joe

    Css

    You are strongly recommended not to use the outdated font element and presentational attributes, but to resort to using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

    Here are some tutorials on CSS; here are the specs regarding font and color settings.
    You probably might want to know a bit about how to apply CSS rules to your question and answer boxes as well; selectors are the name of the game.
    Regards,
