alternating row colors

Hi.. ;)
for readabillity reasons, i would like alternating row colors.

http://caba.de/CaBaFoRuM/index.php?p=/discussion/1819/cabas-kettenmarathon-guinness-weldrekord-2012

I found over Firebug, that the Class names of the Rows are:

class="Item Comment" for 1st row

and

class="Item Comment Alt" for the 2nd row

and the Container of them is named "Comment"

I know that i have to do this in my custom.css and i found this for changing the color:

tr:nth-child(even) {background: #CCC}

tr:nth-child(odd) {background: #FFF}

here I'm stuck... ;(

class names are put in the CSS File as ".comment" and

.Comment{
background-color:#C0C0C0;
}

makes ALL Containers grey...

How to alternate the Container Colors, because i can't use the classes "Item Comment" and "Item Comment Alt", because they have spaces in the classes names...

Thanks in advance... ;)

    Yeah!!! Thank you, hgtonight!! :D:D This Vanilla Community is Awesome... ;)

    this did the Trick:

    .Item.Comment.Alt{ background-color:#EFFBF2; }

    I hope you're not annoyed by my "How to learn Programming":

    1. have an Idea
    2. Search for Solution in the Documentation or Web
    3. if not found, ask Community
      ;)))

    I'm not sure if it's common in the Programmers World, but every time i got an Solution, I'm jumping naked through my flat and celebrate this with a Beer... :D:D
    Okee... not as crazy as that, but im thrilled about every solution... ;)

    So THANKS AGAIN hgtonight, THANKS VANILLA COMMUNITY!! :D:D

    From my (not so old) experiences with how easy it is to extend Vanilla, I'd suspect you'll get an alcohol problem soon... ;-)

  • don't forget you also have .Mine

    you can do subtle variations with .Mine and .Alt.Mine

    grep is your friend.
