Re: Style sheet misuse advice
After a private discussion about what should be the recommended practice in
regards to assigning colors in CSS, Liam, Urban and myself have decided to
post these comments here for public discussion / debate.
The main question is:
If one were to set Text and Link colors using a style sheet, should one
also define the background colors for these elements as well?
