Hi Grant: many of the colors that drscheme shows you are under the
control of DrScheme. For the text selection color, however, DrScheme
defers to the OS's color selection. So if you want to use white on
black, you should probably also change your selection color in the
dialog that Richard mentioned.

Does that help?
