Ok, I'm getting confused and might have missed something so would be grateful if there's anyone out there who can clear this up for me!..
Ok, so to create valid CSS, the W3C css validator wants you to set background-color whenever you specify a foreground color. BUT I'm finding that if i do this, perversely the user cannot make any changes to those page colours using the accessibility tools in Internet Explorer.
Try it with Internet Explorer (v6) go to tools, internet options, accessibility and choose to "ignore colours specified on web pages", then set your colours to green text on a black background for example (you also do this in the internet options window).
Now view a webpage where divs have their foreground and background colours specified in the CSS and see what happens.
Can anyone clear this up? Is it another case of w3c recommendations rendering a web page inaccessible?
