First find the <body> statement in your HTML code. Every HTML page has to have a <body> statement. What most people don't realize is that the <body> statement can be used to change the text and link colors of your page.
In order to change the page's text color, simply add the TEXT attribute or option to your already existing <body> statement. An example is shown below.
This will change the page's text to a dark green color. Don't forget to include the "#" sign with your color codes. For more on colors visit my HTML Color Codes tutorial.
You can also change the colors of your links. In fact, you can change the color of a link, an activated link (clicked) and/or a visited link. Let's look at the three attributes a little closer.link="..." This specifies the color of the links on the page; non-visited links.
Here's an example of a <body> statement using these attributes:
<body link="#00BB00" alink="#BB0000" vlink="#0000BB">
The colors used above were chosen arbitrarily, use any colors you wish. Play around with different combinations and see what you can come up with. Don't forget to include the "#" sign with your color codes. For more on colors visit my HTML Color Codes tutorial.
