lack of color in conversion from EPUB to AWZ3
I like to read an e-book using light grey for the background and black for the foreground. Sometimes, I will use a medium blue for text instead of Black. It does present an easier on the eyes reading experience for myself.
This is a hobby for me. I use windows 7 with Sigil and Calibre and my Kindle.
I notice that in Calibre viewer of the awz3 file, my specified colors only show up for the cover screen. The rest of the screens are black on white. Yet, when I use ADE to read the epub file, the colors are correct.
When I view the awz3 file on my Kindle, the colors are to my specification. That is, Black text on a light grey background.
This leaves me to believe that the conversion process from epub to awz3 is not working. Should I be setting some options in Calibre? Sometimes, I like to use the viewer to check my changes.

With a Kindle 3, the background is light grey and the text is black. In fact, that's how it is on eInk readers. To get this from front lit readers such as the PW, turn off the light or turn it down as low as possible.
