I still have no clue how Barbara came up with her complaint. The pages all
(almost all) have a background image which supercedes (sits on top of
rather) background colour and lives in harmony with the text colours I set.
I test my pages on a Mac, A Window$ machine (IE and Firefox) and a Linux
machine (Konqueror, Mozilla 1.2, 1.7, Firefox, Netscape).

Perhaps... will have to investigate...
