Description Luke Boyling 2006-10-14 07:30:10 UTC
In the past few days, on (it seems) any Category page, in the section that lists
the pages in a particular category, the background colour has gone white. The
rest of the page is whatever colour is set for the skin. As far as I'm aware
this only occurs using the Monobook skin. It was previously the same colour as
the whole of the page. It occurs on both the English Wikipedia and Wikibooks and
in both IE and Firefox.

A similar thing happened to my user page
(;Harryboyles) with the tables I had used. I
had used the syntax: background="none". When I changed it to
style="background:none;" it returned to normal.

The background of all pages is white in default Monobook.  This issue occurs
because the background of most non-mainspace stuff has been changed in the
English Wikipedia with custom styles at [[MediaWiki:Monobook.css]], but tables'
backgrounds have not been changed.  (Table backgrounds are white rather than
transparent by default so that borders and backgrounds of unfloated stuff,
especially the rule under headings, don't run into floated tables.)

Adding the following to enwiki's Monobook.css should fix it:

table { background-color: #F8FCFF; }
.ns-0 * table { background-color: white; }
