And example of the irregularities between <form>, <input> and <textarea> (47.26 KB, image/png)

HEAD mediawiki with white text / dark blue theme (96.33 KB, image/png)

Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-03-24 04:20:05 UTC
Currently the main.css overrides the default operating system color for
<textarea> but not for <form> and <input> causing the main skin to look ugly
where the OS default background color is not white and the default text color is
not black.

I'm not sure if it's a good idea from a user interface standpoint to override
something like this at all, but if it's going to be done it has to be done
everywhere and not just in some places.

HEAD mediawiki with white text / dark blue  theme

under debian-testing, firefox 1.x, xfce 4.2
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-03-26 12:21:40 UTC
I have a dark theme (white on dark blue) as well. Text is visible
in all boxes and the fact it uses my themes is not a trouble for me :p

Screenshot attached show the text is visible everywhere.

I removed the override from textarea {} in MonoBook main.css
