<body bgcolor=#?????? text=#?????? link=#?????? alink=#?????? vlink=#??????>
DEFAULT: <body bgcolor=white text=black link=blue alink=magenta vlink=magenta>
bgcolor is the background color of page, not to be confused with background which is usually a gif or jpg.
link is the color of the link before one has gone to it
alink is an active link
vlink is a viewed link
<body background="" or filename.jpg text=#....>
for fixed background do this:
<body bgproperties=fixed background="" or filename.jpg text=#....>
bgcolor and background can be on the same page. Background will be default, but if the background can't load bgcolor will kick in.
  • ?????? is the color code from color chart
  • background is a gif or jpg graphics.

    NOTE: You may use color names in many cases instead of the code for some colors, but not all. In most cases and with most browsers the single word of the basic colors like white, black, red, blue, green, gray, yellow etc will work. However compound named colors might not. Color is also dependent on the monitor being used to view the color, so if you are seeking a finely tuned color on a very good monitor, that color may not appear that way on a cheap monitor. So you could right the above bodyt code this way:
    <body bgcolor=white text=black link=blue alink=magenta vlink=magenta>
