Is color:#000000 required, or can I just remove it?

Hello all,

Can I omit the definition of the text color, since my text color is black?

I run a hobby forum based on the vBulletin forum software. It has been modified quite a bit, and I always look for ways to remove unnecessary code, even if it's just a few bytes.

I'm now looking at the following:


body {
background:#F1F1F1;
color:#000;
font:13px verdana, geneva, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
margin:0;
padding:0
}


Is it OK for me to remove the color:#000 part, or does it have to stay for some reason?

If users have changed the default settings in their browsers, then black might not be the default. If you define the background color, then you should probably define the text color as well, just to be sure that you're not setting a background color that conflicts with the end user's default text color.

Thanks Fotiman. I'm going to leave it as is.
