Note: Support for the footer was added in bug 66931 and

The reason I chose #aaa as the border color in the mockup suggested there, is that it matches the #aaa currently used in: Infoboxes, all Mboxes, the ToC border, the category box border, and the H1/H2 underline.
cf. etc

One option, would be to add a background color to the box. The standard is #F9F9F9. (I'm not sure why I didn't use that in my mockup?!). I'd recommend adding that.
Comment 2 Isarra 2014-09-21 21:33:34 UTC
#aaa does tend to work a lot better when the background colour is also changed, yeah. By itself it stands out (on white) as much too harsh and dark.

So yeah, do thatn but is there seriously no common class that the other things use? Why the hell not?

Bastardly elements.
