Read the whole message  from me or nothing :) I explicity mentioned 
QPalette::Highlight so note that I talked about blue is only to make my 
statements more clear to usability people.

BTW, "your" style on focus.png does not look accessible (at least no moe 
acessible than CDE style) - it has still only one pixel thick and very dark 
rectangle used - instead of a good contrasting highlight color.
