Aha, you're right on that. C-c works nicely for copying it out. It
even shows up nicely on the whiteish theme.

Quick investigation with firebug tells me that firefox thinks the
background the text is on is some darkish orange/brown so it chose a
nice white background to help it stand out... I assume it's some
bizarre div stacking bug.

Specifically the rule qq/ #page { background-color:#C66300; } / is the
one it objects to. Firebug claims this is line 280 in orange.css. If I
comment out that line, the only negative effect I notice is that at
the very bottom of the page there is no longer a darker orange/brown
band extending down, the bottom is the main background (bright)

I assume the same applies to the other two broken colour themes.

Oh, and it works fine for me without the fix in IE7, I assume IE6 is
equally ignorant of CSS standards in this respect.
