The warning is like it says, you haven't specified a color. This could
result in your page being unreadable if the user has set their text color to
the same as you have set your background color.

To set text to black:

BODY {
color:#000000;
background-color : #ffffff;
padding : 8px;
font-family : Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;
text-align : left;
}

Hope this helps

Hello,

Using the W3C CSS Validator I continue to receive a warning:

"Level : 1 You have no color with your background-color : BODY "

I get this message despite the fact that I do have this specified as
follows:

BODY {
background-color : #ffffff;
padding : 8px;
font-family : Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;
text-align : left;
}

Is this a bug? If not, will you point out my error. Thank you.
