  1. Hello.

    I try this on and off with every new distribution release, and it always leaves me annoyed. A host of applications will make presumptions about either the font colour or the background colour but not the other.

    Actually, I should try it again and this time actually file bugs :)

    Good luck.

  2. The first problem you’ll hit is that, hopefully, your browser respects your desktop settings…. except nobody’s web sites do.

    CSS that hard codes the text to black, but does not touch the background-color. Uh oh!
