    How do you install the background colours in Internet Explorer 5.5 when you have already re-installed and repaired the Office 2000 suite and tested the Accessibility, Colours and Advanced tabs in Internet Options? Currently, the background on each web page is white.

      In Internet Explorer –> Tools –> Options –> General Tab –> click on Colors button and uncheck “Use Windows Colors”… then you may select the colors you like for background and text.

        Thanks. I have tried that option. I actually need to ‘Use the Windows Colours’

      You define your own stylesheet!
      If you’re unfamiliar with stylesheets these are used on the web to define every part of the graphical display of a web page. This means that no matter what the data on the page, a stylesheet can be applied by the author to define how it looks. This is also true of the local machine.
      All you have to do is create a file in Notepad and call is MyStyle.css. Edit this in Notepad and add the line
      BODY { background: white } interchanging ‘white’ with whatever colour you can devise. HEX colours are also permitted. These are #000000 to #FFFFFF representing black and white respectively. #FF0000 is red, #00FF00 is green, and #0000FF is blue. Its basically RGB triplets.
      Now that you have your stylesheet, go to Internet Explorer tools, and select Accessibility. There should be a field where you can selet your own stylesheet file.
      Browse 4 the file you created and Voila.
      If all goes to plan IE should use your stylesheet before anything defined by the web author.

      Hope this helps

      Regards!

        Thanks. I tried that option. Unfortunately for the training manuals I write, I need the web page to appear exactly as the web author intended with background pictures/patterns and colours. All I currently get is the typed words, colourful graphics and a white background.
