Summary: gtk themes with dark backgrounds have invisible fonts

Initial Comment:
Either: gaim needs to use only colors that roughly
respect the selected gtk theme (all fonts need to be
light if defaut is light, etc) or gaim needs to ignore
the background color for the message area selected by
the theme and just force that background to be standard

I use the gnome accessability theme
"HighContrastInverse" and the fonts in the gaim message
window come out black on dark blue (basically
invisible).  So, I understand that gaim is using
multiple colors so it cannot just blindly use the theme
font colors.  Maybe gaim could just force the
background to be white even if the theme says the
background should be dark.  That is less than ideal,
especially for those needing a theme like
HighContrastInverse but at least it works.  The other
option is maybe gaim could have two or more font color
"themes" that are internally selected by gaim depending
on how dark the background is.  for themes with dark
backgrounds, one set of font colors can be used.  For
themes with light backgrounds, the default can be used.
 Or just add a font configuration option to the

Anyway, right now it doesn't work.  To reproduce, just
change your theme to HighContrastInverse and then try
to IM anybody and when they reply you will see what I mean.

exactly how much though.
