Comment 3 Stanislav Aubrecht 2008-08-21 12:14:30 UTC
does it mean that selection color is hard-coded to #adcadc
Comment 4 Ondrej Langr 2008-08-22 10:07:11 UTC
Ideally (i.e. if the implementation is reasonable), the gradient version should be used. If implementation of the
gradient would be inefficient/time-consuming, I'd say the hardcoded color is OK too, but we are still only talking about
Nimbus here. For "over" effect, 50% transparency should be used (this corresponds to hardcoded #D6E4ED assuming the
underlying color is pure white).

For windows & mac OS X, I would suggest some color changes too, but that probably does not belong to this issue.
