Right - to fill a complete line, my recommendation is to use two list
fields; the one in front is transparent (opaque=false), and the one in
back is opaque. For every line of text in the front field, make a line
of text in the back field that is all spaces (all the way across and a
little beyond the right margin of the back field). Then, set the
HTMLText of any of the lines in the back field to the color you want as
we've discssed previously. It's a bit of a hack, but it works...
