Thanks and yes I know about the color bar mod. It's a good one (once you make a few needed corrections to the script), but unfortunately this isn't what I'm looking for, but I do appreciate your suggestion very much.
I do have another related question . . . in case the hex code conversion cannot be done as requested in my original post . . . what file(s) need to be altered in order to change the existing drop down font colors?
Example, suppose I don't want the "Dark Blue" posting font but want to substitute it for a "Light Blue" posting font? What file(s) need to be changed to do this?
