CSS Font Color, Mystique Theme

  1. Hi,

    I'm playing around with the CSS of my (mystique-themed) site, and I'd like to know how I can set the text of the posts to be Black by default.

    If you look at the below HTML coding for the body of my site, it says for color: #4e4e4e. Is this where/how I can change the color of text within posts to be black?

    body {
    background:url('images/bg.png') repeat-x center bottom #000;
    color:#4e4e4e;
    font:12px Verdana, "Trebuchet MS", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    }

    The blog I need help with is yankeesfansunite.wordpress.com.

  2. To change that setting, you can just add in CSS to override the rule from the original stylesheet by adding a new rule to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page.

    You can change the body font color to black with this CSS:

    body {
      color: black;
    }

    Note that also will change font color for the sidebar and anything else inside the body tag that doesn't have a more specific rule (like links for example wouldn't be affected).
