selectors are case sensitive. HTML tags are defined in CAPS. So it woudl be:

BODY
{ background: #abcdef;
}

um, no vladdy, not true...

you can redefine html element styles without using caps. Personally I stay away from caps because they are ugly :)

I think you will find Borgtex has given the correct syntax :)

HTML tags do not have a defined case but xHTML tags are always lower case. Since xHTML is the future, you would do well to start coding all your tags and their properties using lower case. You really need to go to the W3C site and learn about the changes that affect your coding and your coding habits.
