Having trouble hunting down this color

I sampled the color in the area below the button and it is hex #E7E7E8

I've found and replaced that hex color in the relevant CSS files (or so I thought) but the grey is still showing.

I need help finding where this color is coming from.

    .maincontent2 {
        background-color: #E7E7E8;
        float: left;
        height: 100%;
        min-height: 200px;
        min-width: 650px;
        text-align: left;
        width: 55%;

    The color is declared several times in the ie7.css file.

    That's good news, and I'll fix that right away.

    I wonder why my Search is not finding it in the code.  I did a search and replace for #E7E7E8 everywhere and it said it replaced it.  Then I did another search for the hex color again and it came back with no items found.

    Does CSS get cached sometimes?
