textColor misbehaving?

Have you set the color of the actual text by hand, at any point?

What I mean is,

select the text by dragging over it, set the color of it to black by  
from the "Text" menu. Now, setting the text of the field to red won't  
make the existing text red, it will stay black.

I don't know if this is a foolproof way of checking, but if you 'put  
the htmlText of fld "FFF"', you can see if a color has been set that  
the textColor of the field won't override.
