In addition to Matthew's points, the following might be useful:

3) While on the relevant text, `C-u C-x =' (what-cursor-position with a
   prefix argument) shows (extra) information about the text under the
   cursor, including the face:

|         character: 0 (48, #o60, #x30)
| preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV))
|        code point: 0x30
|            syntax: w  which means: word
|          category: .:Base, a:ASCII, l:Latin, r:Roman
|       buffer code: #x30
|         file code: #x30 (encoded by coding system utf-8-unix)
|           display: by this font (glyph code)
|     x:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso8859-1 (#x30)
| Character code properties: customize what to show
|   name: DIGIT ZERO
|   general-category: Nd (Number, Decimal Digit)
| There are text properties here:
|   face                 org-date
|   fontified            t
|   keymap               [Show]
|   mouse-face           highlight
|   org-category         [Show]
|   org-no-flyspell      t

4) While on the relevant text, M-x describe-face (also available from
   the menu Help/Describe/Describe face...) gives you information about
   the face and also allows you to customize it:

| Face: org-date (sample) (customize this face)
| Documentation: Face for links.
| Defined in `org-faces.el'.
|         Family: unspecified
|        Foundry: unspecified
|          Width: unspecified
|         Height: unspecified
|         Weight: unspecified
|          Slant: unspecified
|     Foreground: Cyan
|     Background: unspecified
|      Underline: t
|       Overline: unspecified
| Strike-through: unspecified
|            Box: unspecified
|        Inverse: unspecified
|        Stipple: unspecified
|           Font: unspecified
|        Fontset: unspecified
|        Inherit: unspecified

BTW, I noticed that the face documentation for org-date is wrong - probably
a cut-n-paste error.
