Picasso's blue period

Hey: my specs have a very jazzy filter in them as my eyes were getting 
damaged by staring at large monitors!

No; I think a lot of the problem comes down to whether one wants to used 
quotes or not:

set the textColor of the selectedText to "yellow"

works, while plain yellow seems, sometimes (and there's the rub) to mean 
'blue'; oddly enough plain red means 'red'.

So you now have all sorts of opportunity to make the rather obvious 
jokes about colour blindness, alcoholic tendencies and so on :-)

Richmond.
