Specifically, the black background. I was wondering, is this possible with skins?
I am not only short-sighted but have double vision at close range, and LotRO's UI plays havoc with my eyes due to the horrible contrast of black and bright colours. As everyone knows, the forum has the same colour scheme but has a widget to adjust it. I was wondering, is there a quick way to change the black to a much easier-on-the-eyes colour? Through a skin (preferred), plugin, etc..?

If so for a skin, I can easily make one myself -- I'm wanting to avoid downloading anything. I've started fooling with texturing in Minecraft anyway, so it'd be a decent warmup I suppose.
The only thing I'd wish to change is the black background. I just don't know how and googling hasn't helped very much.
