	8em is quite big (about an inch in the font I'm using now).

	BODY    { background: url(/wrm/images/paper.gif) #ffe0e0; }  /* abs
URL cos NS is broken */

	This was preceded by:

	BODY       { background-color: #ffe0e0;
	             color: black;
	             font-family: "Times New Roman", serif;
	             text-align: center;
	             }

	which sets the foreground colour; they were separate to allow a fall
back if
	the URL didn't take.
