Steps to reproduce:

not sure if this is intentional but makes much more sense to have text background - (for highlighting content etc)

select text
select choose colour for background

Actual results:

page background was changed

Expected results:

text background changed

Currently we do not have a "highlight" function in Composer, see RFE "Bug 318600 - Need text highlight feature to apply background color to selected text (inline css <span style="background-color:xxx">) / Page background color picker is misplaced".

That one additionally contains the confusing UI problem, what IMHO should be handled in a separate Bug. So I reduce focus of this one due to "Only 1 problem / Bug report, <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/QA/Bug_writing_guidelines#Open_a_new_bug_report_for_each_issue!>!"

I doubt that the problem started with 2.26, probably has been in SM forever. So TRUNK
