    I'm sure this is very simple, but I have no clue what the code is for text color. The grey text color makes it difficult for some people to read the blog. I want to change it to black or even a little darker than it is.

    Thanks in advance!

    For changing the color of the text on my blog. For everything, the header text, content text. I want it darker than it is or black.

    Then it would be terribly helpful if you could post a link to your site. We're good but we're not psychic ;-)

    I would also like assistance with this issue. I am editing my child theme based on twentyten. I have found that by adding the following code

    /* HEADING COLORS */
    #content h1,
    #content h2,
    #content h3,
    #content h4,
    #content h5,
    #content h6 {
    	color: black;
    }

    I am able to make all of my headings a given color. I am wondering where the code for the following colors are

    1. Background Color
    2. Main Text Color
    3. Page Title Color
    4. Links Color (both normal, hover, and visited)

    Sorry to somewhat threadjack as my first post, but thought it might help!

    @xC0MMAND0x: It is considered impolite to interrupt another poster's thread. Please post a new topic.

    @spenceri: You have a lot of different shades of grey in that theme. Given that you want to darken pretty much all of it, I'd suggest using Firefox and the Firebug add-on to isolate the appropriate CSS rule in each specific case so that you can the make the changes within the theme's stylesheet.

    It's called Firebug. It's an add-on for Firefox and you can get it from http://getfirebug.com/downloads
