[ubuntu-art] Whats Up with This?

The blue fonts in CCSM are used to show desktop integration when using 
compizconfig-backend-gconf, which I believe is used by default in Hardy.  Nice wallpaper, we have similar desktops. :)

I don't mind the dark theme not that I've been using it for a while. But there are issues with things like Compiz Config Settings, where the app uses blue text, and it is mostly unreadable against the dark background. I don't know why it uses this blue in some places and not others.

Yes, I think they can. I am in the process of clearing this up. In any case,

the fonts are in Intrepid (there were also package for Hardy) so they can be

tested...depending on the outcome I'll set them as default.
