Hi rozsky

since you managed to change one color, you most likely know where to do the changes, right?

In stylesheet.css is your place to make all the changes. Simply make a backup of that file and than start to experiment on your own with color combinations.

you can write the color into the line like:

 

BODY {
 background: black;
 color: white;
 margin: 0px;
}

 

of course if you like to have a particular color than it is best to write it like this:

 

BODY {
 background: #ffffff;
 color: #000000;
 margin: 0px;
}

 

Every program that does webdesign (iWeb, Photoshop, etc) or allows coding (bbedit, texteditor, etc) has a color pallet and there you can see look up the code. There is a whole lot of free and shareware out, but I guess you will have already such a program on your computer...

Hi John,

 

Here is a site that I use alot that has a bunch of Hex codes with the color examples. http://www.somacon.com/p142.php Book mark it as I am sure you will use it alot like I do. Just remember depending on the users browser it might not support the text name for the color you are trying to use. I think currently only 16-24 colors are accepted using the text word of the color. So you are better off using the Hex codes for the colors. Hope this helps.
