I assign a background colour (using Dreamweaver)to a page but viewed in a browser it doesn't appear - in Firefox or IE and same when page uploaded. All I get is the default white. I can only think that I have changed a setting somewhere on my machine but don't know what. By the way the page source shows the colour code ok. Hopefully its a simple problem. Any help would be appreciated.
We've only just started on the website so we are learning as we go but we are sure the page is ok. The background should be a light yellow but on my machine I see white.(On a friends machine it is yellow.) Its the same on Firefox and IE so I'm assuming its peculiar to my machine's settings. there is a table but As I say the page is ok on the other machine.
I've cleared out the temp files etc but all I see is definitely white. Its affecting both browsers so I thought it might be useful to change the monitor colour profile but no good. I must have changed a setting somewhere but I'm a bit lost now.
I have changed the colour but still doesn't work. I downloaded Opera and lo and behold it worked. I got the yellow. So I uninstalled Firefox, cleaned out the registry, temp files etc and then reinstalled it. Didn't work.
I got the same black background and large fonts. If you click on 'Settings' you get a large choice of different formats. I tried a few and my website looked awful in all of them! I haven't looked into it but the stylesheet is certainly not working properly.
Perhaps this is something that needs to be looked into further when designing websites.
