    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!

    CSS:

    a:link {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: #666666;
    }

    a:visited {
    color: #666666;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    a:hover {
    color: #008484;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    a:active {
    color: #666666;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    .textSeparator {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    color: #333333;
    font-size: 10px;
    font-weight: normal;
    }
    .footerText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 10px;
    color: #666666;
    }
    .linksText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    color: #666666;
    }
    .listText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    color: #666666;
    }
    .bodyText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    color: #666666;
    background-color: #E5E5E5;
    }
    .thumbnailText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 9px;
    color: #008888;
    }
    .portraitNameText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;
    color: #666666;
    }
    .portraitBackground {
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
    }
    .testimonialText {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 9px;
    color: #336666;
    }
    .bodyBackground {
    background-color: #E5E5E5;
    }

    i dont have no mac's
    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

    Smile 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!

    Macbook Pro 17" 2.6GHz 4GB RAM
    Shows up as gray on my MBP. I would adjust your contrast (see Preferences-Universal Access) to see if that helps.
