change background in IE

Recommended Posts


Hi, I've searched high and low for this.

I have successfully used screencapture to take a snapshot. The problem is the background is slightly beige, and the text that I would like to see comes up really faint. I thought it would be easier to change the background temporarily to white. (other idea was to convert the saved jpeg to a lighter grayscale)

any way to do this temporarily. I dont want to change all backgrounds to white, just this particular link.

thanks in advance.

Use _IEDocReadHTML() to dump the entire source into a string, then search for the background color (bgcolor=) and change it. Use _IEDocWriteHTML() to display the modified code in an IE object.
