Re: changing bgcolor (was Re: change Text Color)

The docs don't say anything about not being able to update bgColor, though.
In fact, at least up to the next to the last revision of the docs, it
specifically says this for bgColor: "You can set the bgColor property at any
time."  The docs *do* mention a restriction for fgColor and the link colors,
though I understand this limitation is being addressed in 2.1.  As the
original poster mentions, there is a bug in the Mac (and Unix) where
changing the background color after a load overwrites foreground objects.
