Changing the highligh (text-select) color

Recommended Posts

I have a question that widely goes unanswered.

 

How do I change the color of highlighted text? You know when you select a bunch of text, and the web browser gives the selected text a blue background and changes the text white? How can I change those colors to whatever I want?

I strongly suspect that this is a function of the operating system (the so-called 'theme') and nothing that can be changed by CSS for the browser.

Yes, this is what I have heard.

But I have seen it done...

 

 

I think it is javascript.

This site uses it:

[a href=\"http://www.mad4milk.com\" target=\"_blank\"]www.mad4milk.com[/a]

 

Highlight some text with your mouse, and the hi-lite color is pink

if you look into the style sheet of mad4milk.com:

 

::-moz-selection{
    background: #fbdbe8;
    color: #F55B99;
}

::selection {
    background: #fbdbe8;
    color: #F55B99;
}

 

it doesn't work on IE
