Hi Ralph,

Thanx for the tip. I now have a more elegant way to define colors.  I'll try
the "background-color" property.

We've been using the following with HyBrick; it's essentially the same as
Ken's example.

<!doctype style-sheet PUBLIC "-//James Clark//DTD DSSSL Style Sheet//EN">

(define (rgb r g b)
  (color (color-space "ISO/IEC 10179:1996//Color-Space Family::Device RGB")
r g b))

(define white-color (rgb 1 1 1))
(define veju-color (rgb 0.9 0.9 1))
(define red-color (rgb 1 0 0))
(define green-color (rgb 0 1 0))
(define blue-color (rgb 0 0 1))

(element doc
  (make scroll
    start-margin: 20pt
    background-color: red-color
    ; background-layer: 2  - can be included, but doesn't change display
    ; box-type: 'background - can be included, but doesn't change display


HyBrick is available at
