Screenshot showing how text cannot be read once para is selected.

Description of problem:
If I click on a paragraph in a DocBook callout box (such as a note or a warning) I cannot read the text in the highlighted selection.

I have replicated this problem in both Firefox and Chrome.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a para within a DocBook note or warning box.
2. Yellow highlighting makes text contained in para invisible. You can start typing new text but you won't be able to see it.

Actual results:
Text invisible

Expected results:
Text should be visible.

Maybe the text is there but the white font on the very pale yellow selection background makes it virtually impossible to see.

Proposed patch to draw outline for focussed element.

Looked into this one. The purpose of changing the background colour on node select was to highlight that this area is editable. I have two solutions for this bug,

1. Change the code to draw a thin outline to make the area stand out (I'm attaching the patch that does the same), or 

2. Reduce the brightness of the selected area (this would require a few extra computations every time a node is selected).

Could you please apply the attached patch and see if the first approach works or would the second approach look better?

To apply the patch cd into /usr/share/beacon and (most probably) you'll have to use sudo.

Will combine the modifications for the other bugs and release an RPM later.
