:?: Is it just My imagination or has a lot of lettering been changed to a bolder Black on the post headings. :?: Probably only change is My mind playing tricks on me again. :roll: :shock:

I just took an upgrade this morning but that should not have anything to do with the boards but ya just never know what is going to affect what in this Cyber World.

Thanks B.D.

I am sure that this [View posts since last visit (7)] on index page used to be in BLUE letters which is BLACK now on a shaded gray background. And under the TOPICS column on the search page all the post headings are BLACK now and I remember them as being BLUE also.
It dont matter though but I was just curiousitious as to what or why!!.

I posted this question in a newsgroup and here is the best answer I got even though most of it is Over My Head].

MSNTV with the latest upgrade has managed to depreciate the usage of css once again.The changes in link color is the result of css link colors no longer working--- a:link and a:visited link no longer works in external or internal style sheets so nope we`re not getting closer to seeing what pc`s see instead we`re getting further away from what they see.

The new link colors that you`re seeing are the msntv default colors,they may look slightly different on different colored backgrounds but they are the default colors you`re seeing.
The good news is you can still change the link colors by using link="color" within a body tag but it won`t validate at any of the validaters and unfortunately it doesn`t look like we can change the visited link color unless we use javascript within the link coding---I haven`t figured that out completely yet but all of the webpages I`ve sourced that have links on them that haven`t changed colors are pages that are also using javascript.

I hate to be a wet blanket, but that is one of the reasons why I really am glad I do not have WebTV.

Being at the mercy of Microsoft with my Windows platform is one thing, but to be at the mercy of Microsoft in the WebTV format with no ability to remediate the situation would drive me absolutely nuts.

I am even looking at moving over to Mozilla's Firefox... :shock: :? :idea: I have it loaded on Em's computer for an evaluation, and so far it is kinda nice....
