SharePoint Customization: Change the background of the source editor

I just posted on this but this is an easy way to document it for those that have trouble with changing the background colour on the source editor in SharePoint, especially those that are editing the OWS.CSS file to make global changes. OWS.CSS doesn’t have TEXTAREA {} by default so you will need to add it.

NOTE: Changing this changes the background of all textareas in your forms.

For example: If you were editing your OWS.CSS file to make the body take on a centered property you would notice that the text popped into the source editor is also centered, not very desireable. If you add the TEXTAREA to your css file you can simply put text-align:left background-color: etc.

This tidbit has been brought to you by the letter S.
