[vox-tech] gimp question

i have the misfortune of wanting to print a webpage with a black
background.  ain't no way i'm going to print this thing.  laser toner is
just too expensive.

so i saved a copy of the page along with the images and modified the
<BODY> tag.

then i find out the gif transparent images (which contain important
information) use white font which was viewable with a black background,
but non-viewable under a white background.   so now i need a way to
convert white (very thin) lettering within a transparent image to black.

this is unbelievable.

i have no idea how to do this.  i tried the gradient tool (i was hoping
to make a gradient go from black to black and only colour the white
font) but that didn't work.  also, the bucket doesn't work because the
lettering is too thin.

the way the image is set up, it really must be transparent.  i just need
to change the font color from white to black.
