    Web page dense coloured box.

    "You go on a web page and you have to provide some information in order to access that site. The box on that page in which you have to type is light in colour as you must have seen. If the box is light in colour it means you cannot type anything in it. When it becomes dense or darker in colour that means, now you can type anything in it you like."

    Please check.

    Re: Web page dense coloured box.

    I think you mean to say that you can type things in the boxes that have a dark background.

    Is it wrong to say "Dense coloured" or "Dense in colour"?

    "You go on a web page and you have to provide some information in order to access that site. The box on that page in which you have to type has dark background as you must have seen. If the box has light background it means you cannot type anything in it. When it's background becomes darke that means, now you can type anything in it you like."

    Is it correct?

    Yes. It's wrong. "Dense" is not a colour.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Put a comma after "page" (first sentence). Put an "a" before "dark" and a comma after "background". (Second sentence.) Put an "a" after "has" and before "light".

    Re: Web page dense coloured box.

    You go on a web page, and you have to provide some information in order to access that site. The box on that page in which you have to type has a dark background, as you must have seen. If the box has a light background it means you cannot type anything in it. When it's background becomes dark that means, now you can type anything in it you like.

    See above.

    Concentrate on the difference between it's and its. The first is a contraction of "It is" or "It has". The second is the possessive.

    Re: Web page dense coloured box.

    Emsr2d2 has deleted quite a few phrases, which I agree with. You try to include too much information and too much detail in a lot of your writing. Why do you tell us that the box is on that page? We know this from the first sentence. We would only need to be informed if the box were on another page. I think you are trying to be too exact. In English, outside specialist areas like the law, we don't need this excessive detail- it actually makes things harder to understand. I have a page open- tell me the bare minimum to make me able to use it.
