Description deeptech71@gmail.com 2012-09-25 17:20:08 UTC
For example, the web page http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-current/2012-September/date.html contains the following HTML source:
    <BODY BGCOLOR="#ffffff">
That is, the web page specifies a background color without specifying a foreground color. This fucks with my default settings of "cyan text on black background": the said web page gets displayed as "cyan text on white background".

The web page should specify either
- all colors (foreground, background, new link, visited link, active link), or
- no colors.
Of these, it is highly recommended that the latter is done instead of the former.

Fix: 

Fix the configuration of Pipermail, if possible. Otherwise, edit the Pipermail program's source code and remove the generation of the ``BGCOLOR="#ffffff"'' HTML source part.
