I have a people picker field in my Infopath form.  In the Designer, I choose a shading color. This works great in preview mode.

However, when I publish the form to Sharepoint, the shading does not apply - it has a white background.

I have found some comments on the internet that say this is considered normal - these kinds of controls do not retain formatting when used in a web form  (and everything we find on the internet is true of course).  If this is true, is there a workaround?

I have seen the same thing. Unfortunately its a common bug in my opinion. I would delete the row that the field is in and add a new one, dragging and dropping a new version of the field on to it. Formatting can be so fickle in IP. Good luck!

That works sometimes, somewhat.

If I make any small change (like move it a smidgen sideways or vertically) then it reverts to white background again.

I guess I will just color the background of the form, and keep fields and text boxes with a white background
