    Question on Background and Text Colors

    k3gbb
      I am new to Dreamweaver and am having difficulty viewing Background and Text Colors. Although they show up fine when I view in a browser, they do not show on the screen when I am in Design view mode. Note - the color codes do show up in the Properties box...just not on the screen.

      Any idea what I am doing wrong?

            Showing us your code. Being new to DW (and I'm guessing HTML), you haven't
            yet caught on to the fact that all questions are answered by a look at the
            code. The solution is found not by reading what operations you used, it's
            found by examining what code was produced.

              Hi,

              Thank you for your offer of assistance. I can not re-create the problem and all is working ok now.

              When I was having the problem I tried closing out and re-booting...nothing fixed it. So I played with new pages and it seems to work ok. I then we back to my problem pages and, without making any further changes, all was ok.

              Thank you, again.

              George
