Hyatt and I talked about this.  We may want to only do this for text fields... or just use the color of the rootEditableElement....or add a new css property -khtml-caret-color with good default values.

These are all text field regressions so they should all be P1.
Comment 5 Maciej Stachowiak 2006-04-02 23:29:14 PDT
It's odd that text fields ever did this - rich text NSTextViews don't seem to.
Comment 6 Adele Peterson 2006-04-03 00:18:17 PDT
The old text fields didn't do this.  Hyatt and I discussed adding this feature.  Bumping back down to P2 since its not a regression.

Changing title to reflect new goal.  We want to choose a white or black caret based on the background color and foreground colors.

Hyatt and I discussed this new approach for this bug.  This patch just gets the caret color from the root editable element.  This will work well for text controls, and also will work for editable WebViews by just getting the color from the body element.
