The embarrassing presumption of "The default background color is white"

I have come across so many websites/pages where the designer forgot one simple rule in his/her stylesheet: the background color!! In 99% of those it's supposed to be white (the default in some browsers who shall go nameless...) but I am one of those guys, who change my Windows colors, so these pages look very incomplete, when you get a couple of images fading to white on a [not white] background... (heck, I even created a bookmarklet to quickly change the background color of any site to white.) -- Chriztian Steinmeier
