AfterStep has no control over the internal look of applications.  Often, 
however, an application's colors can be controlled from the ~/.Xdefaults 
file.  If so, you'll likely need to read the documentation for the app in 
question to determine the option to use.  For instance, to change the 
background color in netscape to blue, add the following to your 
~/.Xdefaults file:

Netscape*background: blue

... and either restart X or:

xrdb ~/.Xdefaults

Netscape has a truly enormous number of options, which are described in 
the Netscape.ad file that came with netscape.
