Is there a known html code for the default text color?

    I tend to write a lot on-site but then copy over to a google drive document to revise, and when I eventually copy the document back over to DLP the color/size/font is wrong. I can pare down the size and change the font over just fine but the problem I run into is that I can never get this color back without using the 'Remove Text Formatting' button and that tends to screw up everything when I do it in bulk, leading to paragraph-by-paragraph usage so I can adjust for italics and the like.

    Is there a known default [ color] [ /color] code? The palette selection doesn't have the default.

    No I haven't, and I suppose I should have added that I only use Firefox.

    The color code is #BAD6C2

    If you aren't making huge use of italics/bold then you can just paste as plain text.

    If you are, then the option is still there, just include the and in your text.

    Another option is to delete the colour code when you're transferring it over. That'll reset it to default colour.
