Okay so if CSS spec is not going to say anything about this than
setting the background-color and not setting the font color should be
(and in fact it is) allowed. In other words. It is the decision of the
developer if he wants to allow user to use his own font color (let's
assume that background-color is set to white) or to force some
configuration (by setting background-color and color in CSS). I just
wanted to pinpoint that both approaches have their advantages and
disadvantages and CSS spec should not forbid any of them. Do you agree
with it?
Regards Michal.
