IMHO a lighter shade of black is still black...
but maybe you can convince your boss that you changed the background to the lightest shade of black and leave the pages as the are ;-)

An other option is to find a colour scheme for the graphs that suit the eyes of your boss.
You can try a combination of orange, grey and red in stead of the standard green, pink and blue.
The next line on top of your cfg file will result in a such a colour scheme for all of your graphs:
Colours[_]: Grey#b0b0b0,Orange#FF9b00,Dark Grey#818181,Red#ff0000

And this brings us to another problem.. If I made the png's transparent, and
the html background set to black, grid lines as well as the no. of Bytes in
Y-axis of the graphs (corresponding no. of bytes for the graphs being drawn)
disappear.. Having a total black background, we can only see the green/blue
traffic graphs but we don't know how much bytes it amounts to. I tried
setting it to a lighter shade of black so that the grids and bytes number
will apear but it's quite ugly..

Any idea how do you deal with this?
