I've made the white black before and there was some program which had that
option and I'd play with it.
At this point (check CS5 because who knows) the give you white. Its a matt.
I like it. If I dint I could easily change it. just hit the background with
the magic want and hit "Phil". Pic your color or gradient you you name it.
In a layout which is all black it could look better just black.
But at this point I think I do like the white.
Thanks for looking and commenting.
