Sharepoint 2010 Theme / Font Color

I am trying to create a Sharepoint 2010 theme, but it doesn't appear to let you set the font color; rather making it a version of the main Dark 1 colour.  This wouldn't be so bad, except I need the header to be dark red, which is making all the text on the site pink.  Does anyone know of a way around this?

    - Override the CSS for the header text in the file.
    - Here is a list of base CSS classes to get you going:
