    "Are the fonts as manipulable and transferable as the colours seem to be?"

     

    To some extent. As you can see the changes for the links didn't work in some frames so there's a lot dependent on the way the website's been coded.

     

    As for crayons; liquorice = black, snow = white!

    Btw, no need to worry about websafe colours; they're not as relevant as they were, but in this case your changes are only happening in your browser - no other computer needs to be able to view them.

     

    Bedtime now (actually well past) but I'll have a look at font weights and stuff in a spare moment tomorrow.

     

    Meanwhile, play around with the colours and see how you get on. You can't damage anything and you only have to return the style sheet pref to 'non selected' to get back to normal.

    File extension is crucial; it must filename.css  Nothing after the css!

     

    Just rename the file - highlight it and press return, then ⌘A to select all of it, and rename. Just one dot and css, no other stuff.

    Btw; I'll be around for brief periods tomorrow, but I go into hospital for 5 days of tests on Sunday, so I won't be around for about a week.

    Hi again

     

    in textedit, use the Format - Make Plain Text menu command, then save as a .css

    otherwise you have all the rich text formatting information in addition to the styles that you want - and Safari can't fathom which is which.

    Thanks Andy. Just seen this.

    I cheat and use TextWrangler, so I forgot TE would default to rtf.

     

    Thanks for your concern, seventy one; tests are to to see if I'm up to a lung transplant.

    Thanks to both of you for your concern.

    Still a few test results to come, and the final verdict as to whether I go on the transplant list won't be made until mid November.

     

    Meanwhile I'm playing catch-up around the house and trying to get my partner's iMac up to date with security and backups, so not spending much time in here.

     

    Have you had any success with the style sheet so far, seventy one?
