Easy Navigation Strip Colors

Easy Navigation Strip Colors

Short, concise description of the idea
Add a way to customize navigation strip colors without using custom CSS.

Full description of the idea
One of the reasons people dislike the Navigation Strip is that it's not easy to change the colors. Although documenting the custom CSS method is also a good idea, I'd prefer a simple GUI method similar to the current method for style colors. If these extra options are placed on the Viewing Options page, the Navigation Strip should also have its own section.

This method would have a menu with 3 options: Dark Gray, Light Gray, and Custom Colors.

With Custom Colors, there would be three additional text blocks for "Text Color", "Background Color", and "Border Color" with three "Match Journal" checkboxes. By default, these text and background colors would match your journal's current text and background color, since every style has both. Border color would be set to match the background color; this would erase the borders, but not every style has borders.

Edit (7/30/06 1:30AM): Okay, okay. If the viewer and a journal owner picked different colors, journal colors override viewer colors.
