Chapter 9. Colors and Backgrounds

Chapter 9. Colors and Backgrounds

Remember the first time you changed the colors of a web page? Instead of the old black text on a gray background with blue links, all of a sudden you could use any combination of colors you desired—perhaps light blue text on a black background with lime green hyperlinks. From there, it was just a short hop to colored text and, eventually, even to multiple colors for the text in a page, thanks to <FONT COLOR="...">. Once you could add background images, too, just about anything became possible, or so it seemed. CSS takes color and backgrounds even further, letting you apply many different colors and backgrounds to a single page, and all without a single FONT or TABLE tag.
