Syntax
      background-color: color | transparent | inherit ;

Color - A color name or hex code
transparent - Make the element see-through
inherit - Inherit from a parent element.

When setting the background color for Text it is strongly recommended to also set the font color in the CSS selector, this ensures that the text will remain readable no matter what the browser/device default Text color happens to be.

Examples:
body { background-color: #ff0084; }
.emw3class { background-color: rgb(255,0,0); }

#emw3id { background-color: #00ff00; }
