Novice - Need help with user stylesheet

Hello,
In the viewer I've pasted the stuff below in as the CSS. As you can see I've changed the color to 255,255,255 to see if anything would happen because I've not been able to detect any change the the viewer when I change the margins or line spacing. There must be something simple but non-obvious that I am not doing. From reading all the descriptions in the CSS thread, this should have changed the appearance of the viewer but it does not.

Thank you,



body {color:rgb(255,255,255);
background-color:rgb(174,174,174);
text-align:justify;
line-spacing:1.8;
margin-top:0px;
margin-bottom:4px;
margin-right:50px;
margin-left:50px;
text-indent:3em;}
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6
{color:black;
text-align:center;
font-style:italic;
font-weight:bold;}

Apparently line-spacing is no longer a valid CSS command. It is now line-height.

Perhaps it's time to update the obsolete suggestions on the CSS thread so that all of us novices don't go crazy trying to solve the wrong problems.

Just a thought.

When the viewer is open click on the preferences icon in the toolbar. This will allow you to change most items. The margins can not be adjusted unless you are in Paged Mode, click the yellow scroll in the top right corner to enter Paged Mode.

When this thread was started there wasn't a large varied preferences for the viewer available to alter the look and feel. Most of the CSS suggestions probably still work, but I bet some of the suggestions never did work.

Good Reading.
