Enhancement Color setting

I have waited for a few days to hear from Launchpad. I have not received any ack. so therefore, I am going to use this forum for a request.

I realize that I can set the background and foreground color in the viewer manually. I am requesting that the viewer can also be set by the specified colors in an e-book.

If your book defines background and foreground colors, the viewer will use them.

Maybe I am not defining the background and foreground color properly in my epub book.

body {
color: black;
background-color: powderblue;
margin: 0.5em;
width: auto;
border: 0;
padding: 0
}

This color is picked up by the PC programs ADE and Kindle.

You have probably overriden colors in your viewer config. Use the restore defaults button in the viewer config.

Thanks for the help. I don't know how I set up my view conf. but when I hit the reset button, the viewer started showing all of my colors. One day, I just might learn this program.
