Shortie is MIA and you know more about this stuff than I do the only thing I can think of is change the color or contrast of the text sorry I can't be more helpful.  :)

Most likely in index.css for that theme.  So would be within ./Themes/[theme name]/index.css

Open it up and do a search for quote, look at the color css rule, and if there is a background css rule attached.  These are the colors you would need to change.

Thanks Solo
I'm using The Ultimate Playroom so there are multiple themes I would need to change correct?
This is what I found in the index_darkblue.css file.
Am I on the right track?

blockquote, blockquote blockquote blockquote
{
   font-size: 0.9em;
   color: #c8c8c9;
   line-height: 1.4em;
   background: url(../images/_darkblue/quote.png) 2px 2px no-repeat #131313;
   border-top: solid 1px #0033cd;
   border-bottom: solid 1px #0033cd;
   padding: 1em 1em 1em 2em;
   margin: 0.3em 0 0 0;
}
blockquote blockquote
{
   background: #e7eAfC;
}

/* A code block - maybe even PHP ;). */
code
{
   display: block;
   font-family: "courier new", "times new roman", monospace;
   font-size: small;
   background: #131313;
   border-top: solid 1px #0033cd;
   border-bottom: solid 1px #0033cd;
   line-height: 1.3em;
   padding: 3px 1em;
   overflow: auto;
   white-space: normal;
   /* Stop after about 24 lines, and just show a scrollbar. */
   max-height: 24em;
}

That was it DM... Thanks!!!!

I have another one for you.....

go to vjbforum.com and choose the dark blue theme on Shorties Ultimate Playroom. See on the top and very bottom how the background is transparent?
I want to do that to all the gray areas on the page.... Seems like the backgrounds are multi layered though.
Any ideas?
