This depends on what color you're using... for /DeviceRGB, you could use 
setStrokingColor(r,g,b); however if you're messing with the content 
stream directly, just insert

r g b  rg

where  r g b values are between 0 and 1. So 1 0 0 RG sets red. Don't 
forget to add a linefeed or a space to separate from the rest.

However I expect your problem to be much more complex... PDF isn't 
"something like HTML", so look around for the examples in the sources 
and then come back for more help :-)
