I've been looking for this throughout the web and can't even find anyone else even asking this, let alone a solution...
Is there a way to change the color of the highlight area within a text input when text is selected? Not the highlight border or the background, but the portion that appears around the text when you have the text actually selected.
Thanks for the links, but it does seem as if the actual text highlighting just isn't exposed.
This granular of a tweak to an HTML form control is just another good argument for eliminating form controls altogether. Haha!
