Notes: Currently, the bold, italic and underline buttons become higlighted black when you mouse over them, obscuring the letters inside them. This doesn't seem right. Also, according to the image posted on the wiki page, every tab should be visible regardless of whether it is selected. However, right now, only the currently selected tab is visible - if you're trying to switch to another tab, you can't tell which one it is. Also, the alignment menu is completely black. The alignment visual indicators are only visible when you mouse over them. (ALL FIXED)
