To start with, you will need to define your page background color like so:
body {
     /* This creates a dark grey background*/
     background-color: #333;
}
 or use:
body {
     /*This creates a black background*/
     background-color:#000000;
}

Once this is done, you can then change your Form1 attributes by altering your existing background-color to the same #333 or #000000 like so:
#form1 {
      padding:10px;
      width: 450px;
      margin:auto;
      font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size:13px;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      /* Change this to determine your form background color */
      background-color: #333;
      border: thin solid #FFF;    
}

The altered file has been attached as a plain HTML file which you can view in your browser. You may also notice that I have added a border element to the form, but this is entirely optional and can be removed if you desire.

I would also recommend a different change beyond this minor change since it appears that you are beginning to build a multi-page website. Industry best practices require most, if not all, style marks to be moved to an external CSS file which is called whenever a page loads. This practice allows you to alter all style elements with one modification across an entire site. Once you have your <stylename>.css file built, you can then call it from your HTML file using <link href="../<stylename>.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> in your <head> element.

For more information about using CSS, please refer to  w3schools.com or w3.org

Ah, well that is handled within your HTML code and there are several methods you can use. The one I prefer is to use within the context of a form is the <label> tag.
<label>New Password</label>
<input name="pass1" type="password" id="pass1" title="Use this form to create new password for user: XXXX YYYYYYY"  />
<label>Confirm Password</label>
<input name="pass2" type="password" id="pass2" title="Confirm password"  />  

Open in new window


If working with labeling items outside of a form, you would use either a <caption> within a <table> element or some other text-based HTML such as <p> or heading tag.

I would recommend reviewing HTML tags and their attributes. I prefer W3Schools for covering the most common uses of most languages.
