Bold Text Style Turning Black

    I can’t seem to be able to get bold words within my page content to remain the same color as the rest of the body text.

    I have highlighted the words that I would like to be seen as bold and selected the “b” in the tool bar above the page editing window. Then when I view the page, those “bold” words have turned black and disappear against the black background on my page.

    You can see this happening in my first list item on this page:

    Suggestions? Am I missing somewhere to control this in my css?

    Thank you for the help!

    The blog I need help with is


    Give this a try:

    b, strong {
    color: #fff;


    Perfect. Thank you so much. I knew it was probably simple, but I still didn’t know the answer. Thanks!


    Cheers :)

    I found by right-clicking some of the bold text and selecting the “Inspect Element” option in Chrome. Doing that will show you the HTML for the thing you clicked on as well as all the CSS styles that apply to it. Very handy.
