partial fix

this fixes the default theme to match the pinstripe behavior on OS X. 

Now the text looks completely black (Email label + address). When you hover
over it the whole thing turns blue to look like a link.

I'm not sure if it is better with this patch or the old way.

Properly making the labels not part of the link turned out to be a big deal.
Probably a couple day's of XUL hacking to change how we render address book
cards. That's more time than I care to spend on something as minor as this
right now.

Hmm... from your description I think the old way would be better.
It's ugly, but at least it lets users know at a glance that there is some kind
of a link there.

I'll put it targeted for 1.0 but I doubt anything happens on that front before
th end of the summer.

Target Milestone: Thunderbird0.7 → Thunderbird1.0
