## Customization Options

There are two ways to customize your docs. We recommend using CSS variables; it's the easiest and safest way to add customization to your docs.

If you want to change your header background, you can set the CSS variable like so:



The other option is to write custom CSS. We'll expose global class names for you to use as selectors (prefixed with `rm`):



:root vs body

Our CSS vars are targeted on the `:root` selector and load in after yours, so use the `body` selector to ensure your variables take priority!




## Changing Your Typeface

You can change the typeface throughout your docs through the `--font-family` variable.



If you’re using a service like Google Fonts, you'll need to include the `<link />` elements in your Custom HTML.




## Header

Some variables vary depending on the primary color of your header background (set in the Appearance page, if it's dark or light). You can base your CSS variable overrides on light or dark by doing:
