 * Wrong text highlight color when export document to doc/docx
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125268
   + MSO allows "shading" with any color and "highlighting" with 15 colors only;
     LibO highlighting corresponds to MSO's shading
   + http://zolnaitamas.blogspot.com/2015/03/word-compatible-text-highlighting-in.html
   + Help: "Microsoft Office has two character attributes similar to 
     LibreOfficeDev character background. Select the appropriate attribute 
     (highlighting or shading) which you would like to use during export 
     to Microsoft Office file formats."
   + Solution #1a: Use highlighting (WFM/NAB)
     - LibO character background might get replaced => the issue in this ticket
   + Solution #1b: Use shading
     - not intuitive for MSO users (paragraph > theme colors), 
       in particular on round trip
     - default for the export until 5.0 but replaced with highlighting then
       (tools > options > load/save > char highlighting)
     - changing defaults back and forth is not good
     - improve help
     - patch has been submitted by Tamaz (c26)
   + Solution #2: Introduce shading in LibO
     - unclear use case besides compatibility, confuses users (c34)
     - could extend the palette widget (c45,46)
   + Solution #3: Special palette activated per compatibility flag
     - another patch by Tamaz (c21)
     - cripples LibreOffice while MSO may change at any time
     - code needed as the new palette is offered now unconditionally
   + Solution #4: analyze the document and warn the user when using a not
     supported feature (if the file was opened as doc/x) or when saving
     - might be a long list and need some time to compile
