Summary0001947: Turn off document colours
DescriptionThere are sites where text cannot be read because of
lack of contrast (e.g. white text on a white
background). This is probably because NS can't handle
the page correctly either because of a bug or a design
limitation. It would be helpful to be able to revert
to default colours as can be done in Oregano (Display
- Use document colours).

No, you can't just ignore CSS - you have to ignore all colours (css and html) and just use the defaults. A very common fault with web pages is that the foreground colour is specified in the stylesheet and the background colour is specified in html. If the css doesn't work for some reason and the default text colour is the same as the specified background colour you can't read the text.

I'd like to add my wish for this to be included too. Perhaps it could just work by ignoring any CSS used by a web page, simply reverting to the defaults. The same effect can currently be achieved by saving a web page locally as HTML only and then re-opening that file from the local disc; everything appears in black, white and blue; but the problem with that is images and links don't display/work.
