can you explain what you mean by "selected text" and by "selection bar". I
don't get if we are talking about the same thing here.

Just to use the same terms, this issue is about the background colour in the
categories on the Tools - Options - - Appearance option page,
that are labelled "General", "Text Document", "HTML Document", "Spreadsheet",
So here there is no selection at all (that's what I don't get in your

Back to the issue, the text colour (for "General", "Text Document", "HTML
Document", "Spreadsheet", etc.) is the default bold text colour.
That's why I've chosen the dialogue colour for the background: this two colours
are likely to never be the same (otherwise the text written in a dialogue could
not be read).
Then I simply lighten or darken the background colour, so that it differs a
little from the dialogue colour.
