white background, but I'd be curious to know who finds gray and who finds
white.>>

When redesigning my own site recently, I discovered that specifying a
"default" page background in FrontPage 98 will result in a gray background
when viewed with Netscape 3. (Remember all those dreadfully unreadable gray
pages from the early days of the WWW?) For the page background to display as
white in all browsers, you must choose "white" not "default."

It's advisable to test your site with multiple computers, multiple
platforms, and multiple releases of multiple browsers. Unfortunately, the
browser manufacturers don't seem to make it easy to do the last of these.
