I am using geoserver to serve up an image pyramid basemap. I want to have all areas outside of the data extent be black (instead of white).
I have the map displayed inside of a div tag and changing the css on that tag or the container (another div) it resides in has no effect. I have checked both the geoserver and openlayers documentation, but have not seen any way to change the background color.
Any suggestions on where to continue searching? Do I need to generate a black tiles and serve them?
