I’m confused

Why are the css tutorial codes different online than in the css missing manual book?

I am following the tutorials in the CSS: The Missing Manual book and using Dreamweaver 8 as my editing program. Only on chapter 2 and things aren't exactly right when previewing in browsers. The preview in Dreamweaver is exactly as it should be. In the browsers, the colors do not display as coded.

I went to the sawmac css page and viewed the source for the chapter 2 global.css --and it's different than what we were instructed to type in the book (color codes are shortened). I copied and pasted that code into my css, then previewed in browser, and it worked perfectly. I would hate to have to do that with every lesson just to make it work properly....any ideas?
