A prelude -- I'm sorry if this is taking a long time to get out. My ISP blew
their main router Monday, and repairs are making email a hit-or-miss thing.
I will send this as soon as they are back up -- again. Didn' they ever hear

OK, Gail. I dropped the ball on that one, but we now need more information.
For exactly which background do you want to designate a color? To get a
single background color for the entire page you would designate it in the
<.body> tag, but to get a background color for your title alone you would
probably need to use Styles (what we call CSS or Cascading Style Sheets).
These are a little more complicated -- but not that bad for simple things
such as background colors. Let me know if it is these you need.
As for the body text of your page: unless you designate some other color for
text in the <.body> tag or by using the <.font> tag or CSS, text is always
<.body bgcolor="red" text="blue">
and more blah.
The whole page, in fact.
For the body tag the color may be one of the "named colors" or the exact
color in the RGB color system, expressed in hexadecimal form such as
"#ff0000" which is red.
