Re: Pink text on white ground?

Hmm, these almost work! They change the colors, but not in the way one 
would expect. Foreground seems to change the background color and vice 
versa. Additionally the colors change to something very different from 
what is chosen (almost the opposite color, but not sufficiently opposite 
to be certain that is what is indeed happening). AND, the color changes 
that DO occur, don't last through the execution of the next screen 
refresh. Everything changes back to what I had before. 
Oh, and whatever color you have, pastel seems to be the rule. No darker 
colors, and black is completely out. 

What am I missing?
