It is just white whatever I do. Ideally I would like to change it to the Pretentious green on black old skool look. Advice gratefully received.

    Have you used the "Preview CSS" Menu? The theme is for the editor pane,
    not the preview pane.

    I don't have a CSS for the Green/Black (like White Rabbit for the
    editor). But it would be easy for you to create CSS that set the
    background to black and text to green.

    If I may be permitted to ask you a general question:

    Is Markdown Composer aimed only at those with HTML and CSS at their disposal?

    Many thanks

    Not at all. But the preview is only useful for HTML -- other export
    formats don't lend themselves to live updating. For example, LaTeX
    takes several seconds to create a PDF, which isn't anywhere near fast

    That said, the preview shows you how MMD will be interpreted, whether
    the final result is converted to HTML, LaTeX, or other formats.
