I'm writing to you to get a clarification on the use of the term "desktop
background" as described in the documentation style guide at the following
In the style guide the term "background image" is defined as: "The image
that is applied to the desktop."
The question now that came up in the context of bug 131289 is whether
this term really only refers to the background *image* only as it sais in
the definition or whether it's meant to also include the background
*colors* in addition to any (possibly non-existant) image.
If the term is meant to include both the colors *and* the image, then
another question that came up is whether there should be additional terms
defined that refer to either the colors or the image individually, e.g.:
"background colors": The colors displayed on the parts of the desktop not
covered by an image.
"background image": The optional image that is displayed on the desktop.
See bug 131289 for the context in which these questions arose.
