Hello, my question is very simple: what does CSS standard say about
setting default background and foreground (font) color? Normally I
wouldn't bother about it, but one thing stands in the way. But let's
start from the beginning: If some user sets his own default color
sheme (e.g. white text and black background), then this is his choice
and we shouldn't discuss about it, am I correct? The webmaster can
also set these colors. But what if webmaster set only one of the
colors, leaving the other one undefined? There is a possibility that
the page could be completly unreadable. Example? Here it is:

So, don't You think there should be something about it in the
standard? I really can't see a situation, where both of the colors
shouldn't be defined, so I think setting just one color is in some way
lack of professionalism, because the webmaster should predict that
kind of situation. Tell me what do You think about it.
Maybe this is already defined somewhere, In that case sorry for the trouble:)
