As I explained in bug 17311, "HighLightText" on "HighLight" was equally
intended in MicroSoft's original definition to be used for the current menu
item in focus - i.e. white on blue, in both MacOS and in Windows 95 (which was
current at the time).  Windows IE still defines these as light on dark.  WebKit
should use the most similar concept in the Mac's GUI, which is the menu
highlight color pair.  This is because web pages often do not correctly pair
"HighlightText" and "Highlight", so it is important to follow the light on dark
concept to preserve contrast.  They should of course be the Mac's particular
