* Start DOM inspector, open the site
* Search Menu -> Select Element by click
* Click on the 'by phone' heading
* Holy cow, that's some heavily nested HTML!
* On the right-hand side, click the drop-down next to 'object - dom node'
* Choose 'computed style'

What gets shown on the right-hand side is the 'calculated' style -- after 
all the rules have been applied. In this case, Arial 14px rgb(203,62,0).
