I meant to say "color.background" and that's what my style sheet used.

I got color.background from the example style.html in the HTML 3 Tour link
off the Arena status page.

an excerpt:
# If you don't know why you see this line, you should probably upgrade to Arena 0.96

h1: align = right
h1: color.text = #F0F0A0
h1: color.background = #900000
h1: margin.left = 0

I've noticed another quirk, which is not really a big deal, but quirky
nonetheless.  For red, any value less than 9 is rendered black, for blue
also, anything less than 9 is rendered black, and for green, anything less
than 7 is rendered black.  So you can get a darker green than you can red
or blue. :)   Maybe its just my display...
