Text Contrast / Color adjustment global

Hi,

I  just purchased a SquirrelMail skin setup from NutsMail.  Pretty slick.  I only have one them.  It comes prepackaged with a bunch of plug-in directions, etc.  

With the skin that I do have, (XP silver), the contrast between the text and the background isn't the greatest, and rather than having to wade through the style sheet and the source code  I thought that perhaps there might be a way to somehow globally apply some changes that would improve the readability.  Is there a way,  or would I be best off determining the classes or DOM paths to the items that I'm interested and writing a javascript that would allow me to dynamically adjust these values.  Haven't read all of the documentation yet, but maybe there is something in there about the sytlesheet that would help.

Just as an aside, it is a pretty nice setup.  With the plug-ins that are available and with virtual hosting, I can use this platform as an interface to all of my e-mail accounts with alot more control and flexibility that I  otherwise have (.e.g SPAM plugins, weather, fortune, virtual domains, etc.)
