#35314 closed enhancement (fixed)

Background color should be applied to the body element instead of html

Currently, the background colour for the admin is applied to html rather than body. This is not ideal. When applied to body, html inherits the colour. I know it sounds backwards, but that's how it works.

If a plugin attempts to add a background colour to body, there will be occasions when both the html background colour and the body background colour are visible at the same time.

I think simply using body is more flexible. I have included a patch.

Component: Administration

Setting the background color on body is more flexible than on the html element. This patch assigns the background color to body instead of the html element.
