    FP2000: Black on black

    I have created a website with the use of Style Sheets.
    In the style sheet I useas background color black and as body text color yellow.
    This is very nice, but when I look at the website with Netscape it shows the body text color also black.
    What do i have to change to let is also work in Netscape?

    Are you sure it is not your setting in Netscape?

    Re: FP2000: Black on black

    I think I can see the same in both IE5.5 and NS4.08.
    Main difference is text at the bottom beginning "~~~Welcom op de website..." - scrolls in IE but is fixed in NS.
    Both come out in a bright blue.
    Below is clip of one of the links - are you referring to this text?
    Do you want me to post a full screenshot of what I can see?

    Hold on - I think I got it.
    Yellow text is showing OK - below is clip from NS showing hidden text 'selected'.
    This text I can see OK in IE as white..

    This is what I see in IE.
    Have you checked your compatibility settings in FP?

    <pre> <tr>
    <td align="center" vAlign="bottom" width="4%"><a href="#TOP"><img border="0" src="../ (snip)
    <td width="7%">
    </td>
    <td width="89%" bgcolor="#000000">
    <font color=red><font color="#FFFF00"></font color=red>

    Re: FP2000: Black on black

    Hello Leif,
    You see exacly what is happening in IE it is white on Black (not yellow sorry) and in NS you dont see it.
    Does this mean that the Style Sheet will not wordk with NS?

    My settings in FP are correct I think (See pic)

    Leif,

    Re: FP2000: Black on black

    Sorry - my experience with style sheets is lightly less than zero so I'm not going to be much more help. Hopefully someone else will pick this up and solve it for both of us!
    BTW - under compatibility I have 'Browser versions:' set to '4.0 browsers and later' - this may help ?

    Re: FP2000: Black on black - Netscape workaround

    I downloaded your stylesheet using Word, so this might not be all of it:

    <img src=/w3timages/greenline.gif width=33% height=2><pre>.LastUpdate { font-family: Arial Narrow; font-size: 2mm }
    a:link { color: #9999FF }
    a:visited { color: #FF9933 }
    a:active { color: #66CCFF }
    body { font-family: Arial;
    background-color: rgb(0,0,0);
    color: #FFFFFF }
    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { font-family: Arial Rounded MT Bold }
    h1 { color: #FFFF00 }
    h2 { color: #3399FF }
    h3 { color: #FF9933 }
    h4 { color: #FF9933 }
    h5 { color: rgb(102,102,102) }
    h6 { color: rgb(153,153,102) }
    </pre>

    <img src=/w3timages/greenline.gif width=33% height=2>

    Not being a stylesheet user, I skimmed my huge HTML book and... Although you are setting color to white in the body setting, Netscape remains unhappy about something. With some experimentation, I determined that Netscape's model does not apply the most general style when no specific style is available. Instead, you literally need to code to the <td> tag level to get what you want:

    <pre>td { color: #FFFF00 }
    </pre>

    What a hassle! But I'm glad I looked for the answer 'cause I'm sure I would have run into that one day.

    You may also want to add a TD entry to your style sheet. NS requires formatting to be applied to each cell of a table individually which appears to be causing your problem.
