This should be simple, but I have not used an HTML Dialog until now and I am not an HTML programmer. The example in Help under "Using an HTML Control on a Dialog" does not quite work.
----------------------------------------------------
Set the value of the string identifier as follows:

[html]<style type="text/css">html,body {padding:0; margin:0; background-color:ButtonFace} * {font-size: 8pt; font-family: "MS Sans Serif";} </style> <a href="http://www.MyWebSite.com">Visit my Web site</a>
----------------------------------------------------
Displays everything you see above.
If I leave out

[html]<style type="text/css">html,body {padding:0; margin:0; background-color:ButtonFace} * {font-size: 8pt; font-family: "MS Sans Serif";} </style>

It looks better, but the background color is white (I want grey). What do I need to do?
Some of the old links on that topic on this forum are dead.
Basic MSI project.
Thanks

The "Using an HTML Control on a Dialog" help topic only applies to InstallScript and InstallScript MSI projects. For Basic MSI projects, refer to the Hyperlink Control (http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/installshield19helplib/Default.htm#StartTopic=helplibrary/DlgControl-Hyperlink.htm) help topic.

Thanks... that's about where I was at.
So it looks like there is no way to control the background color (it is white and I would have preferred grey)... guess I can live with that.
