Please help with title colour, am mystified!

    I have customised most of my CSS, but the main header stubbornly refuses to change colour. The font changes under h1 font changes, but I cannot find anywhere else to input another colour than that brick orange!

    Worked off the Black-LetterHead template, I want something really simple, am after changing the #FD5A1E (I think that is the colour of the header!) to #B22222...

    Here's the CSS sheet:

    body {
    font-size:62.5%;
    font-family:Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color:#000;
    color:#2B2B2B;
    text-align:center;
    margin:0;
    padding:0 0 20px;
    }

    #page {
    background-color:#FFF;
    border:2px #333;
    text-align:left;
    width:760px;
    margin:20px auto;
    padding:0;
    }

    #header {
    background-color:#FFF;
    height:200px;
    width:100%;
    margin:0 auto;
    padding:0;
    }

    #content {
    font-size:1.2em;
    overflow:hidden;
    }

    .widecolumn .entry p {

    }
