Please take a look at http://twiki.ntp.org/bin/view/TWiki/StandardColors
and let me know what colors work best for you. We would like to use a
different highlight color for each web.

If you wish you may test these colors in the Sandbox Web by editing 

BTW: You can override the per-web color settings by specifying the following
on your TWiki User Page:


Where #XXXXXX is the color.

I didn't realize that. Sorry. I've never actually looked at the style

I normally specify font sizes as percentages. The TWiki style sheets
will too, once I can sit down and fix them.
