hello - please i need help. i´ve to finish a website.
i tried to change the background of the html-editor in designtime.css, using !important;
body {
font-family: sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
background:#333 !important;

but nothing is changing - i still get white background and have white fonts!!

ok, i see what the problem is.
in my own css - i use background: transparent;
apparently it overwrites the body-tag of the designtime.css. so as soon as i use transparent,
i´m not able to define the color in designtime.css and the background gets white.
if i use the body-tag of designtime.css and use a color in my own css, it works.
something doesn´t like "transparent". is there a solution?

I see that there are some styles like:

body {
background-color: transparent !important;
height: 100%;
margin: 0;
background-color: transparent !important; shouldn't be there...

you mean in the traxler.css? this is my problem! - i have to have the dienst1.html being transparent with no background, because it is loaded into an iframe on dark background.
if i delete this, the page gets an background - this is not what i want.

I still cannot understand why are you using iframes? Which exactly of the site functionality cannot be achieved using some other technique?

i use tumults hype pro. my clients want to edit their sites for themselves.
so in hype pro there´s no editible div possible.
therefore i always use iframes for editible text and all your dmxzone-extensions.
if i have a lot of text and use modern layouts, i have to scroll down and down and up again.
in my opinion this is very troublesome and a lot of my clients don´t like it, too.
also i create apps via phonegap and html5 for iOS and android. for this purpose it is very useful to use iframes.
