Comments - colour background with links

Just a quick question.

Copying some text and links and adding it to my "comments" for a book.

Thing is what I copy has a white background, while the normal one is grayish.
Looks real bad (to me)

Can't use the above toolbar to remove the formating as I will loose all the links.

Is the only way to change this to copy all the Html and edit it manually?

Select the book, click the Edit metadata window then under the Comments area click on the HTML source tab and manually remove the offending color codes.

Hrm.. thought so.

Manually doing it on something like this is too time consuming

Spoiler:
<div><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>Prolific novelist Stross pauses to collect short stories that have not (yet) been stitched up into his longer work. Stories that move the U.S.–U.S.S.R. conflict onto a massive disk in another galaxy (Locus Award–winner Missile Gap), offer a spam-filter solution to the Fermi paradox (MAXOS) and suggest clever bargains with the devil in a newly frozen Scotland (Snowball's Chance) demonstrate Stross's ability to crisscross genres, blending SF, fantasy, horror and espionage. He also pays homage to his literary forebears, combining Lovecraft and the Iran-Contra scandal (The Colder War) and bringing in Carl Sagan and Stephen Jay Gould as characters. Though individual pieces are well-done and deservedly popular, the collection has an overall sense of early drafts and reworkings of other pieces, as with Trunk and Disorderly, a P.G. Wodehouse–on–Mars test run for 2008's <em>Saturn's Children</em>. <em>(July)</em> <br>Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Anyway yes, I select it and copy it to notepad and do a copy / replace on the "255" to "240"

Didn't that panel used to be white one time? - shame its grey if most of the web, where you copy stuff from is going to be white.

I suppose just putting in txt and then copying any links individually is the other way to go.

Defiantly room here for some tweaking or something

Found out how I should be doing it.

The background replacer icon works
So workflow is as follows.

Download metadata and comments as normal.
Find more info you want to add..
Copy from web as normal and past into comment field
Select text and then the Background icon and change the 3 RGB colours to 240
(Add that colour to custom colours, so its quick next time)
