How does one apply colour on the backgrounds of the articles themselves - Is that possible?

its RGB, RedGreenBlue, so there is 1 byte for each. 00-ff for Red, Green and Blue.
#ff0000 is red, #00ff00 is green.
try this online color picker http://www.colorpicker.com/

do you want to apply a different background on each article?

one can "Edit HTML Source" in TinyMCE and add the following div element:
<div style="background-color: #f00;">

or

<div class="bg_red">

TinyMCE will add the closing tag for you.

TinyMCE has a button named 'HTML'. when you click on it, a popup will show up where you can edit  the HTML Source.
can you find it?

ok, so you've clicked on the HTML Button and added the above mentioned <div> Tag?

you can then customize the style attribute:

<div style="background-color: #f00;">

Open in new window


where #f00 is the hexadecimal value of the color RED.

you may want to take a look at http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colors_legal.asp for further explanation of valid color values.

let me know if this is what your were looking for.
