Description Raimond Spekking 2007-02-05 20:09:16 UTC
The table of the input form has a white background. This patch makes it transparent.

Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-02-05 20:19:47 UTC
Would it not be better to remove the stupid CSS rule that's causing this for all
forms, or to add a specific selector so that the background colours are
inherited as expected?
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-02-06 01:35:05 UTC
The rule is unnecessary in the default skin, since the background there is also white.  WONTFIX.  
Ask someone to recolor the backgrounds of tables in their custom styles, where they've recolored 
the page background.

We tried it, it was ugly (try floating a table with a transparent background: rules from headings 
and whatnot will be visible through it).  Besides, it's the fault of whoever made all these broken 
skins that don't recolor table backgrounds for non-main space.

As I recall, IE6 doesn't support inherit for background-color.  But even if it did, that breaks as 
soon as you put your table in a div, since then it inherits the transparent background.  You'd 
have to do * { background-color: inherit; }, which will probably break stuff horribly (e.g., 
overwriting background images).
