    Go read the TOS properly and take it seriously or your AdSense dream will blow up in your face further down the line.

    You don't want to mess with the code for Adsense apart from what is available on Google -- it's against the TOS and will get your account disabled.

    Just use the colors and styles available to you from the Adsense control panel and try to work it into your site's overall look.

    One is professional and polite....

    I obviously misinterpreted the TOS then
    I thought you could change colours as long as you could read all the text

    No stress and thanks for the info

    'I thought you could change colours as long as you could read all the text'

    Er you wanted to make the text bold I thought.. I quote:

    "i want the font to be bold basically!"

    Colours eh.. come on now, I wasn't impolite just short and to the point. This time though, I don't know.... :)

    Both responses were ok IMO. just different ways of saying similar things (both are giving you valid advice)

    You cant change anything in that way. Can you use CSS to change JS anyway ?

    Well, you can actually change them.... But remember we are guided by the policies. It's up to you to choose which way you want to go:

    1. Change the code of Adsense to let it look as you want it to
    2. Let Google give you the code and don't change it.

    But, the policy of Adsense told us to do the number 2. So, you must decide it.

    Don't change the code. Just use Googles formatting options.
