Baffled by colour coding of easy questions

Not a bug, just a conundrum. Maybe something is eluding me that is totally obvious to other people, but I haven't yet managed to work out why some of the "easy" questions appear highlighted in a khaki colour, rather than against the more usual yellow background. It doesn't seem to happen in the "pro" section. Can anyone tell me what it means?

For me it's fluorescent yellow Jul 16, 2003

I'm using the Beta design and today it happened something strange.
I received two kind of notifications for the answers:

from, Subject: [] Answer to your question (term),
from KudoZ, Subject: [KudoZ] Answer proposed (term)

If I follow the links of the latest I reach the page, and the answer from which I followed the link is fluorescent yellow.

It happened with the two questions I asked, and it was the same person's answers that came from " kudoz". I wonder if it's related to KudoZ.Net.

Questions from non-members/people not logged in, appear in a different color Jul 16, 2003

Because some people prefer to avoid them.

The "current" answer is highlighted. Jul 16, 2003

When you get notification of a new answer from within the new design (in other words, the answerer was using the new design), the link will cause that answer to appear highlighted.

Also, if an answer has been selected, that one will be highlighted.

Thanks Jul 16, 2003

Thanks, Henry - it's clearly the questions from non-members that have been puzzling me.

Thanks Henry Jul 17, 2003

This "color matter" was puzzling me since a few days but I did nt dare to ask... ( I thought it was coming from my own computer).

Now everything is clear
