Actionbar Compat change title textColor

I am trying to modify the text color of the title of the ActionBarSupport. I have used ActionBarStyleGenererator to create a theme with the correct colors and it works well.

While using the light theme, I would like to change the color of the heading to white (in the genererator I cannot set the text color(. For a number of reasons I cannot use the dark actionbar theme. I am so close, just have to get the title to white ;-)

What I am doing wrong here?

<style name="ActionBar.Transparent.MyApp" parent="@style/Widget.AppCompat.Light.ActionBar">
<item name="background">@drawable/ab_transparent_myapp</item>
<item name="progressBarStyle">@style/ProgressBar.MyApp</item>
<item name="titleTextStyle">@style/MyApp.TitleTextStyle</item>

<style name="MyApp.TitleTextStyle" parent="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Widget.Base.ActionBar.Title">
<item name="android:textColor">#ffffff</item>

Embarrassing. I was not paying attention to the values-v14/-folder (which overrides the vales/) ActionBarStyleGenererator created. Using the android-prefix on the styles in values-v14 it worked:

      <item name="android:titleTextStyle">@style/titleTextStyle</item>
