Thanks. I fixed it.
The software used by the forums allows you to set preferences for a "Board Theme".
I use the Default theme. You're most likely using the Shades theme (which is a custom theme designed to match the colors of the main site at http://www.steves-digicams.com
that we automatically set new members to).
Unfortunately, sometimes text that looks fine under one theme, doesn't look fine under another theme. So, it's best to avoid using text other than the default (don't even change it when you type).
I had to highlight your text to see that you were telling me you had to highlight my text. ;-)
To see how the themes work, go to your Preferences Tab under the My Account button at the top of the page. Here is a direct link:
