I know how many membes prefer to select different colors for their text when they post something. But please don't. Here is why:
The color you select may show well in the skin you're using, but it might not show that well in different skins, which other members use to view your post. Sometime its impossible to view the text , when the background color matches that of the text you selected, and you will not be aware that, while you see it perfectly well, others don't.
Each skin has its default text color, so if you just typed something, without changing that default text color, it will automatically change when viewed in other skins, to suit their own background color. But that does not happen if you changed the color when you typed your post.
For example: if you are using IPB skin, and selected red text to type with, all other members who use 'Royal Red' or 'Dark Blue' skins will find it very difficult to read, if not impossible.
So, please simply do not select different colors, just type, and your text will be fine in all skins.

I would like to suggest that users who find it difficult to read others posts could highlight the text with their mouse and read. But that would still be inconvenient!
