I do not have ignore author colors enabled.

I suspect the source of one of the problems I am experiencing with some of
the pages on the W3 web site may stem from a css ruleset over riding the
user default color for text in the <body> while the colors for the Links,
Visited Links, etc may not have been set by the stylesheet or attributes in
the body tag.

 * Style sheet for the HTML 4.0 specification


body {
    background: white;
    color: black;

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">


Unfortunately, none of the Macintosh Web Browsers that I use allow me to
attach a user defined style sheet.
