Speaking from the depths of my ignorance:   
When viewed in Vim any .sla file seems to have a lengthy 
list of color definitions,

<COLOR Register="0" Spot="0" RGB="#cd3333" CMYK="#cd3333" NAME="Brown3" />

So in html I would try coding:

<FONT color="cd3333" ...>

What I can't figure out is why the values are identical for RGB
and CMYK. But snce there are only 3 doublets I assume it is
correct for RGB.
