    1. Edit the background-color property in your stylesheet (style.css), typically for the body declaration but it could be any element, depending on your needs.

    2. See the information on the_excerpt() template tag. For even more control, see my plugin:

    3. Some searching will come up with solutions:

    http://search.wordpress.org/latest+posts
    http://search.wordpress.org/recent+posts
    http://search.wordpress.org/latest+comments
    http://search.wordpress.org/recent+comments

    Or check through the plugin listings:

    Regarding the background, you also need to be aware of the presence of background images, as in the Kubrick (default) theme. If that's the case, then you'll actually have to recreate the background image in image editor.
