	I guess it would be wonderful to bring this closer to people editing
documents; I've always been frustrated by the lack of flexibility and
usability in the Format->Character->Font Effects->Font Color drop-down
(and equivalent toolbar / quick pallete).

	Do you have plans to make these more easily extensible with custom
colours ? Then again, perhaps it is a feature that we have a great list
of colors in there, that are hard to select and edit ;-)

	Fantastic to have you working on this :-) looking forward to whatever
is next.

	Thanks !
