How to Change Colors

Main page

If you're running this software on your own computer rather than online, you can change the colors of the links and the notes.

To change colors:

1. From this table, pick a color for the links and a color for the notes. The lighter colors are more distracting, but easier to distinguish from the rest of the text. The darker colors are less distracting, but harder to distinguish from the rest of the text.

  808080   A05000   D07000   FF8000
  900000   B00080   D000D0   FF00FF
  400080   7000E0   0000B0   0000FF
  004080   0070E0   008080   00C0C0
  008000   00C000   00A050   00D060
  307000   70B000   808000   C0C000

2. Using an ordinary text editor, not a word processor (e.g., Notepad rather than Word), edit the file style.css. The first two lines each contain the color for the links, and the fourth line contains the color for the notes. This is what style.css looks like; in your text editor, change what is shown highlighted here:

a:link{color:#0000B0;text-decoration:none;}
a:visited{color:#0000B0;text-decoration:none;}
body,p{font-family:Arial;font-size:large;}
span.note{color:#008000}
span.red{color:red;font-weight:bold;}
span.white{color:white;font-weight:bold;}
h2{color:red;font-weight:bold;text-align:center;}
h3{color:red;font-weight:bold;text-align:center;}
h4{font-weight:normal;text-align:center;}
h5{font-weight:normal;text-align:center;}
