    Problem with text

    I've had a couple of people mention that they can't read what i've posted because of the dark background and dark text.
    What I'm seeing is a light grey background and black text.

    I'm not sure what's going on, can anyone enlighten me? please.
    Is it a glitch with just this one post?

    Following is a screen shot from my monitor of the text on your post. It's very hard to read on my monitor and appears very dark grey on dark grey - my monitor is calibrated. Maybe your monitor needs adjustment?

    I had a look at the post, it appears that you have "played around" with both font, style and size as well as the colours.

    I edited it back to the auto colour setting and from there you can see the difference in font style and sizes.

    My guess, you are copying and pasting your text from Word etc, which Word has a white background with black text.

    AP using a posting/editing interface that picks up formatting from WORD etc. and therefore it is grabbing the black text, and formatting it as such.

    Because AP has both light and dark skins it is best to avoid coloring your posts.
