Yes, I know how to do this, thanks, and this is exactly how I do it. The point is that the colour does not hold or transfer to the website. It shows as having changed in the wysiwyg area, however, the original colours remain in the actual website, and I can't customize specific areas with the wysiwyg. Yes, I've refreshed the page. The original css seems to override the wysiwyg area, and retains either the original factory design colours or the colours I switched to using Theme-it before trying to customize further with the wysiwyg.
