It is possible to change both the text and the background colours of all our pages. Below are details of how to do this in Internet Explorer and Firefox. It is not possible to set colours within Safari. Where possible we have given the keyboard shortcuts, shown in brackets.

Please note, we do not specify text, background and link colours on this site. If you have already specified the colours you require in your computer properties, your browser will automatically pick up your preferences, therefore, unless you need to also change the colour of the table grids you will not need to do the following.

[Back to top]

  • From the tool bar, select Tools (Alt + T).
  • Select Internet Options (Shift + O). This will open a new window:
