Question about sewing

I've knitted all the parts, back and front pieces have been blocked too - and now I have a question about sewing. Or two actually!

A) When you sew the sleeves into the body, do you use main colour or accent colour? Won't it show?

B)Where can I find the instructions for sewing in the zipper? I couldn't find it on ChicKnits.

Thanks!

As for seaming the cardigan, I always leave a long tail when I bind off at the top of the pieces, so I just used those to sew the raglan seams - some were the main color, some were the contrast color - but if you seam using mattress stitch they won't show.
