    When you're typing a response, all your editing tools are right at the top of the window. The big bold A with the little down-arrow next to it is the color thingy.
    Just Highlight the text you want to change and then pick a color for that text.

    Isn't that Opera House the same as the Australian Pavilion at the 1967 Expo in Montreal?

    I was in every one of those Pavilions and many went to their respective countries.
    I think the USA Geodesic Dome is still in Montreal. The US Pavilion, called the Atomium is still in Brussels Belgium, after the 1958 Worlds Fair there. I was there in 1964.

    I recently switched mine, after looking at the Windows 7 themes available. Being an animal lover, and having a 1 year old cat, I like these.

    I'm, still, amassing beautiful shots from photo.net & letting them just change every 10 secs.

    I was living in Mtl in '67. Went to Expo a number of times. Yes the Aussie pavilion design was, indeed, based on the Sydney Opera House. Also, was the theme for 1 of the obstacles for Show Jumping @ the Olympics. It is, now, here in Calgary @ Spruce Meadows & is, still, used in big Classes @ each of the major Tournaments. Spruce Meadows is the #1 Show Jumping venue in the world, btw. And I rarely miss any of the Tournaments there over, the past 30 yrs.

    The geodesic dome is, still, on the site of Expo '67. The dome is a creation of Buckminster Fuller. This wknd is a big deal there, too. The F1 Grand Prix of Canada will go, again, in downtown Mtl on that same island that was built for the World's Fair.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    No, that was designed by Jørn Utzon and ended up costing MUCH more than the Government anticipated.
    There is info on him at Wikipedia.

    Ooops, guess it was long ago enough that my memory was wrong. The Aussie Expo pavilion did not look similar to the Opera House. Sorry, my mistake.

    I know this thread is getting pretty old, but I'm still using the "City Lights" theme I downloaded almost a year ago.
