inverse colors , I couldn't find option in calibre

I was wondering if calibre has a way to reverse colors on the screen on 505. So instead of white background with black letters, it would be black background with white letters.

I would love to see a setting in calibre that reverses the color scheme.

I would expect a feature like this to be at the reader end rather than in Calibre.

As an example the Stanza eReader for iPhone/iTouch can invert the colors without Calibre having to do anything special.

You should be able to do it by putting

Code:
body { background-color: black; color: white; }
in extra css provided the source document doesn't specify its own colors.

thanks , love your calibre program!

maybe you could include option in the convert settings on same page with base font sizes about inverse colors or say something like " black background and white letters" . I too am not sure I would know where to find the settings css provided with the program.

body { background-color: black; color: white; }

I copied and pasted it in css and I didn't get it to work. Did I do something wrong? Using LRF format
I just highlighted it in red to show you exactly what I added.

I did it and 1st book I converted it did not work- I am sure I did something wrong, it was already in my 505,
but 2nd book I tried worked like a charm.
