Chapter 6. Structural HTML Tags > Global Settings with the <body> Tag

6.3. Global Settings with the <body> Tag

The <body> tag, originally designed to delimit the body of the document, has been extended to include controls for the backgrounds and text colors of a document. These settings are global, meaning they will apply to the entire document.

6.3.1. Colors

You can use the <body> tag to set colors for the background and text elements (see Table 6.1). Specified link colors apply to linked text, but also to the border around linked graphics. (To learn how to specify color in HTML, see Chapter 5.)
