Well, the colours are stored in hexadecimal (base 16). All colours are made up with red, green and blue values. The first 2 characters (in "FF0000") are the red value, the next 2 are the green value and the last two values are the blue value. You can use the windows calculator to convert these values to and from hexadecimal and decimal if you want. You can also use the colour chooser in Windows Paint to find out what the red, green and blue values are in decimal, then convert them each to hexadecimal to put in your color="#FFFFFF" setting.
You dont have to use this format, you can also use their names as shown on this web page: http://www.merlyn.demon.co.uk/htmlhues.htm
I hope this was helpful and not too confusing ;)

Adobe Photoshop also gives you the name of your current colour in the hexadecimal value when you choose one from the colour scheme tray thing-a-majig
