I don't know why, but you can use in the RGB designation that you want for
options in the cell expression (menu>Format>Show Expression)  appopriate
cell of the style sheet
For example, for text cells you might add    FontColor->RGBColor[0.6,
0.901961, 0.882353] to the expression of the cell Prototype for style:
