Default Setting Alternative Font Colors

I'm progressing slowly but everything is going great. I'm currently working on Chapter 16, "Web Site Security". However, I've noticed that I don't like the font colors on a number of my web pages (including login.aspx). The font colors that I'd like to change (primarily in the "darkgrey" format) are the ones that seemingly are dynamically generated i.e. "Register to use Web Site" on the Login.aspx page, The entire "Reviews List" on the ReviewsAndGenere" page, The hyperlinks on the "Home" page, etc. All come out dark red on the dark grey background. For the life of me, I can't seem to find how to change the "color" attribute for these on the css forms, the master pages or the pages on which they are generated. Any suggestions on how you access their color attributes?

Hi there,

You can either set them directly (using something like "a" in your CSS file) or use the various templates for the controls. You can click Convert to Template on the control's Smart Tasks panel and then directly modify the underlying controls in Design or Markup view.

Hope this helps,
