Attribute for <BODY ...>
BGCOLOR = color expression

Usage Recommendation
use it, but don't rely on it

BGCOLOR sets the background color of the web page. For example, to set the background color of a page to a light-yellow, use:

this code produces this
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFCC" 
   TEXT=BLACK 
   LINK=BLUE
   VLINK=PURPLE
   ALINK=RED
   >
this page

When you set any of the colors for a web page, set all of them. Otherwise there is no assurance that the colors you set will show up against the defaults you didn't set.
