Mozilla Mail and News COLORS


From: Tim Wunder <twunder@iwmail.com>

Just found out about an interesting little tidbit regarding Mozilla mail/news. If you like to have the various quote levels in mail and news be different colors, you can do it with Mozilla by editing the userContent.css file stored in your profile's chrome directory. A user pref dialog is in the works, but who knows which milestone it'll show up in. The Mail/News folks are concentrating on performance for the next
couple milestones.

This is what needs to be added:

blockquote[type=cite] {
border-color: red ! important;
color: red ! important;
}
blockquote[type=cite] blockquote {
border-color: green ! important;
color: green ! important;
}
blockquote[type=cite] blockquote blockquote {
border-color: blue ! important;
color: blue ! important;
}
blockquote[type=cite] blockquote blockquote blockquote {
border-color: gray ! important;
color: gray ! important;
}
blockquote[type=cite] blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote {
border-color: gray ! important;
}
blockquote[type=cite] pre, blockquote[type=cite] div {
color: inherit ! important;
}


Change the colors to suit your particular fancy. "border-color" is the color of the vertical bar that replaces the >'s, and "color" is the text
color. This works with current nightlies, but I don't know if it works on pre-0.9.5 (or even 0.9.5, for that matter).
