Question on displaying background color in Safari
 
Hello,

I know this is going to be heresy but since I'm not a MAC user I need some advise from those of you who are the experts on MAC's.

I have developed a website in which the background color does not display in Safari. What am I doing wrong? The background should be a very light gray. However, it seems to always display in white.

I will provide to you my web address along with my CSS. Would one of you folks be willing to take a look at my site in Safari and see if you experience the same problem and, if so, possibly provide a solution.

I thank you in advance for you kind assistance!

it is definately grey on my end, thepeople who have tested it for you might not have a correctly calibrated monitor or just cant tell that it is grey because the grey you appear to be using (666666) is extremly light. i prefer to use the grey (cccccc) for a lot of the stuff i do

RE: Safari Background
 
Thanks Chris,

I've seen it in one Safari browser where there was a definite distinction. The background showed up as white which was in stark contrast to the gray I used even though it is a light gray.

Glad to hear that you can view it properly.

Thank you!

Shows up as gray on my MBP. I would adjust your contrast (see Preferences-Universal Access) to see if that helps.
