    Who decides color of selected text and its background?

    Hi all,
    Mostly it is dark-blue for background and at sometimes I see white instead.In some pages, there is no change in background color for selected text.
    Can we explicitly specify styles for them? Or is it browser specific?

    regards,
    art.

    I believe it's defined by the browser and/or OS based on the original background color of the page, as well as the text color. As far as I know, it's always done so that you can still read the text.

    Seems OS specific for me. Windows browsers change color from XP to Vista, so...
