It's hard to tell the exact colors of the yellow and orange, because they occur in text only and there's a lot of anti-aliasing involved.

the orange in the text "free download" is mainly RGB R:254 G:95 B:39
the yellow in the text "Order Entry" is mainly  R:255 G:220 B:0

The dark red is R:61 G:10 B:10
The dark green is R:10 G:61 B:10

Get a picture editor with a color selector tool, take a screenshot and inspect the colors.

cheers, teylyn
