Hi Ken:  I got the colors changed ( white BG,Black letters) OK. thanks.

I don't know why, when using the Source Editor, there are 2 very smalll black square at the end of most lines of code.  The left square has the letters "CR" , the right square has an "F'" in them.  

What are they for , How did they get there and how do you get rid of them?  Thanks for the color help.....Bob
