Has also happened on 1.4.1

ADDITIONAL OPERATING SYSTEMS : I have had reports on other
operating systems as well - so it is consistent.
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
In javahelp the search highlight was previously a light
grey color. Now the search highlight appears as a dark
blue - in checking this on Windows this highlight co-
incides with the color defined in the windows area
of 'Appearance/Scheme/selected item property.' This is
fine in windows where the underlying font changes property
to display as white when a dark color is displayed, but in
this case the underlying font does *not* change color when
a dark color is used in this selection. Whatever swing
previously used in this area, please return to it.
REGRESSION. Last worked in version 1.3.1
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1.create a javahelp system
2.include it in an application
3.choose to display a search item - note the color of the
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Previously the highlight was a light gray (using the
default windows color scheme) now the highlight is a dark
blue (using the same color scheme.) After looking at the
color scheme the color of the highlight can be changed by
changing the color of the 'selected item property'.
This bug can be reproduced always.
CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
Change the selected item property on the windows system.
However, doing this also changes default windows uses.
Release Regression From : 1.3.1
The above release value was the last known release where this
bug was known to work. Since then there has been a regression.
