Changing the darkness of the outline or filled-in squares

EclipseCrossword normally prints a thick outline of the puzzle instead of a standard full puzzle grid with lots of filled-in squares, but you can change to the standard grid if you prefer it. Normally it uses a medium grey color for the outline and filled-in squares to save ink and present a more pleasing result. You can adjust the darkness of the border and filled-in squares if you wish, including making them solid black.
