i've complained about this on several occasions but it never got any attention so i decided to try again with a screenshot hello

i guess this was some design choice or something but i much prefer the contrast on the left, which is what the website used to look like when palettes were first introduced. at least make it an option.

for what it's worth, i agree, i liked the high-contrast better. and an option as part of each palette to set background opacity would be the best of both worlds :)

I hear both of you. Opacity (and some other things) could be tied in to the palette for more flexibility. There are a few things I'd like to do with palettes to make them integrate with the over all site better. But right now is not the time for any of that. Once I've moved to Austin in a couple weeks I'll quit being social every free moment that I have and might be able to concentrate on things like this.

'Hate to be so picky and efficiency-core here, but if you're only going to use elmModify once, you can just access setAttribute directly from after retrieving the element:

document.getElementById("pageBG").setAttribute("style", "background: none; " + "padding: 0 10px; ");

I don't know JavaScript that well, but I'm sure you can't chain it up like jQuery. This statement does work, however; parentheses aren't required around document.getElementById() as I thought.

rhgjkrgh whatever i just googled "how to make greasemonkey scripts" and that was the "Modifying Elements" example

there's nothing wrong with the way i do it and doing it that way only makes the code messier and harder to read </bubsy>
