Browser preferences (background color, font settigns, etc.) are there for a reason. By over-riding these user-specified settings with HTML and CSS, you are breaking a crucial rule of usability.
Give the control back to the user
okay. I have a question. Why do people feel this way? Do they feel that designers have nothing to contribute to the content?
Obviously the design is very important, because there is a desire to control it. As a designer I see this as a lack of trust, and I'm not quite sure how to feel about that.
