In CS3, you can change font color in properties sheet.
it create a style for you automatically, which is bad enough (see any pages with style 21, style 19 lately?). No more <font color=" ... > old stuff, ok.
Well, not sure it is improvement or not, you have to give it a name in CS4, that's good, right. But, wait, you have to click CSS button first, then, fill out the dialog box. (remind you or Office 2007? what about the new CS4 visual style, is that a title bar or not? ... ... a secret race to make it as difficult to do as possible?)
if you want to, you can go back and edit the rule, but, it is a different dialog box now ... ... and why the background is a different color?
