Question ID: 732078
I have a website at and I'm having an
issue with the color of the block around my name.  When opened in
FrontPage, the color of the block is a dark green, but when opened in
a browser (both Firefox and IE show the same issue) it is a light
blue/teal color.  Could someone let me know what the problem is and
how to fix it?

Most of your problem is with Front Page itself. Front Page isn't
really the first choice for making websites (Microsoft won't use it
for their websites, so why should you?). I would go for something like
Dreamweaver ... however, the other problem we are facing are the
colors themselves. You have background set at the color #7ccab1, which
on Firefox, IE and the rest of the known world (like Photoshop) is
decidedly Teal.. that's what color that is, no matter what FrontPage
is telling you it looks like, that hex is Teal. There are colors
called Web Safe Colors, which should be your first choice in web
design. Web Safe colors are suppose to look the same (or very close to
the same) no matter which browser or computer graphic card is
translating them.

A dark Green would be #006600 or #003300 ... so I would change this in
your CSS file ..

#header {
	background: #003300 url('img/bg_header.jpg') repeat-x;
	border-top: 5px solid #006F4A;
	padding-left:0; padding-right:0; padding-top:43px; padding-bottom:43px

Change that area to be like I have it hear and save the file, then
take a look at your website. It should be more in line with what you
were looking for.
