[Kopete] Issues with styles and contact's fonts

This isn't really a bug as much as it is a missing feature. Maybe there is a solution for it, but I haven't found anything in the configuration dialogs.

Usually people on AIM will have their text color be non standard, and often this clashes with the background of whatever my current style is at the moment. If i change the style invariably it clashes with someone else.
I think it would be awesome if we could control the text of our contacts perhaps universally or on a per user basis. That way I could set everyone's color to black, and use a style with a light background and actually be able to read without squinting or highlighting.

If I have somehow missed this option somewhere in Kopete.. please let me know.

Thanks :)

I agree that this would be nice. My girlfriend uses a rather light colored font, and I'd like to have a white background and be able to read her text.

It seems silly that kopete would show the other user's font color but not background color, as they're usually intended to complement each other.
