    well, i tried that but the thumbnail is the result. i don't see any text "disappearing" due to them having the same colors.

    #notice{ /* another IE fix: changed font-size */
    clear: both;
    margin: auto;
    padding: 5px 7px;
    color: inherit;
    font: x-small arial,verdana,sans-serif;
    [COLOR="Red"]background: #007700;}[/COLOR]
    
    #pageContainer > #notice{
    clear: both;
    margin: auto;
    padding: 5px 7px;
    color: #0066CC;
    font: small arial,verdana,sans-serif;
    [COLOR="red"]background: #0066CC;}[/COLOR]
    Code (markup):
    you have the colour specified in two locations. If your viewing in IE you need to change the first value.

    did you place another div within pageContainer? if so, properties of the latest div will take precedence...
