Change colours on friends page

Change colours on friends page

Short, concise description of the idea
Put in an option to allow font colour tags to be turned off on your friends page.

Full description of the idea
Sometimes my friends put in colour tags directly into their entries. Meaning they type something like < font color="#fff" > some text < /font > into their entries directly.

Now this doesn't cause much problem (normally), but when they choose a colour that is exactly the same as my background, I think we've got a problem there. I've got to 1. highlight the entry altogether 2. go to their page to read the entry. Which in theory works fine.

What I would like to do, though, is to have an option that lets me prevent the inline code from messing up my friends page. That is, when on my friends page, the colour tag doesn't load for me (should I wish to disable it), but the code remains intact when say on their own journal, or when friend 2 (who doesn't have the thing disabled) sees it on friend 2's friends page.

Of course, I would love it even more if this option was totally opt out (so that if folks wanted to allow their friends to colour their friends pages), it would still work for them.

Edit: Sorry, my mistake. You can prevent this from affecting your friends list if you use the font { color: inherit; } tag in your stylesheet. Note, though, that it might not work if the person chooses to use inline styles like < font style="color: #fff;"> some text </ font>. Or to be really precise, it still doesn't work for me. ^^;

I can't think of any way to do it through CSS, since theirs is an inline style, and will overwrite whatever I do with styles on my page. Meaning stripping their tag is the only way that I can think of. But I'd like something a little less drastic than that.

An ordered list of benefits
  • It saves the annoyance of having your colours messed up when your friends decide to change their font/ background colour of their entries

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • It involves messing with how someone else's page is displayed (sort of, I think), so it might not be all that pleasant for some people.
  • It might not be possible to implement

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Very frankly, I've no idea. Whatever that allows for selective display of html tags, I suppose?
