I went to a yahoo site and the text is medium blue
on a slightly deeper blue background. I don't know
why anybody would create that unreadable combination,
but they did. I'm using Mozilla 1.7.2 but I think
the place to make changes is in XP, Appearance someplace.
I'd appreciate being led to it, with instructions, and
thank you.

The ideal place to make changes would be in the html for that page but
since you're not the author/owner/editor of that location, it's a not a
practical solution.

In IE (Internet Options> General> Accessibility), one can change/ignore
colors, fonts or implement a custom *.css file. Mozilla probably has
similar settings in its menus.

Thank you, Sharon. I'll ask Mozilla where it is.
I already e-mailed the group moderator who does
control the code.
