Dark mode with dark font?

Hello, I have been trying to convert two books' dark font into white font. Is there an easy way to do this? Other books work fine--they have white font, but there's two books that have dark font that won't budge.

Here's an image to show what I mean:

It's easy to remove the background or font color in the conversion process, but there's no easy way to change the dark font to white during conversion, because the default font color is always black. You have to do it in the editor. Put color: white in the body style and remove all the other font colors from the css, if there are any.

But that will only work if there is no black color specified in the individual paragraphs (there sometimes is, for whatever reason). Otherwise the paragraph color overrides the body color. Of course there might not be any color in paragraphs in that specific book, then it should work.

Well, I tried it with a book that had the black color in every paragraph in the css. Didn't work.

It only worked when I removed the color from paragraphs in the editor.

Actually you dont need to do either, just use the filter style information setting in the conversion dialog to remove all colors

I converted the book and copied * { color: white !important} into the extra css setting and while there is now some white font, it isn't every letter.

Is there something I missed or something else that I can try?

Thanks.

Didn't it give you black text on white background? I thought you wanted white text on black.
