Summary: Font/Window Color Enhancement:

Initial Comment:
It seriously look's stupid when you can only change the
background color for the text and not the entire
window.  I believe this should be considered a *basic*
function expected by any good messenger program.  I
would like to see gaim support changing of the entire
background window color in chat dialogs.

I still think they should add this change.  If the user
receiving the text with full background doesn't like it,
than they can have an option to override any font/color to
their own default.  I believe most chat applications allow
this anyway.

They could add this option, and allow the users to choose to
strip incoming messages of the text/colors if they want, or
have them show up as they want it to.

Just because the receiver doesn't like the way something
looks doesn't mean the sender should be subjected to the
other persons tastes, the same goes for the other way around.

I disagree.  I think the current text should only be
highlighted.  It fits more into the gnome desktop (more
standard desktop).  On windows, maybe that would be fine,
but I don't think they should do that on the gnome desktop
at least.  I actually don't like it that way anyways, it
looks ugly if they have a background color that doesn't
match on your background.
