Hi, I would like to be able to change e.g. the default #FEFECE background color to a different value. For many diagram types this is possible via skinparam but seemingly not for work breakdown structures. Thanks (for an answer and for this incredibly helpful tool!!!)

Well, we are currently thinking about a completely new way of changing colors/fonts.

MindMap diagram and WBS diagram have been choosen as beta tools for this new feature (which will be deployed some days for all diagrams).

You'll find some examples on http://plantuml.com/style-evolution

Since this is still under development, your idea/suggestion are welcome.

A basic example :

@startwbs
<style>
wbsDiagram {
  Linecolor black
  BackgroundColor Red
  FontColor White
  RoundCorner 10
}
</style>

Regarding the part:

<style>
wbsDiagram {
  Linecolor black
  BackgroundColor Red
  FontColor White
  RoundCorner 10
}
</style>

I see it is also possible to use a CSS like syntax i.e. use a colon to separate name and value and a semicolon at the end of the line. I think it would be better to show this as a default.

By accident I typed BackgroundColor: x00ff00; instead of  

BackgroundColor: U00ff00; but I didn't get an error message.
