Wow, it is as you said it was!

I was thinking this before, but after seeing the images, I'm almost 
positive I know what's happening, just not how to turn it back off.

That looks to me like you've somehow activated a UI designer development 
feature, setup to color-code the accelerator keys, and others that could 
work as alternative accelerator keys.

Either that, or some accessibility feature, but that doesn't fit as well 
as the UI designer feature.

Now I've never run these apps so I don't know if any have this feature or 
not, but you've not been playing around with either qt designer or 
kuiviewer, or some other similar development tool, have you?  I could 
easily see a qt developer feature being available that once activated, 
would color-code like that.

Thank You Duncan,

No, I have not been doing any development. I am a novice user. I think this happened when the computer froze up once and had to be rebooted. It booted back up with the red and green menu highlights.
