I don't recall any difficulty when I read it earlier today....R
Maybe you have a browser add in thats not playing nice.
And there you have it !Your changing the colours to something that is non standard on the site (or any site) can make things look terrible.
Point being "you" changed the colours then said they were horrible LOL
If a programmer wants a page to have a certain background color it is the programmers job to take care of that.
Isn't it reasonable for a programmer to assume the user has a sensible default background colour?
Just because 99 out of 100 users use white as their favourite background, a programmer should never assume the 100th user's background is set to white, too.
Isn't the logical conclusion from that that the Programmer should impose a white background - thereby frustrating the choice of the 100th user?
