FYI Ray,

I've had a situation in which Menus (with color) performed perfectly until run
on a Performa 636CD; in which case, at some point, the Menu Bar turned Blue
and the Drop Downs all became colored as well. The application functioned OK -
as far as I bothered with it - but this was not acceptable. What made things
even worse was that I had tested the program on another 636CD and it had run

Solution: Set the Extensions to System 7.5.1 only. So there must have been an
extension conflict of some sort. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to
isolate which one was the culprit. The other 636CD was also running 7.5.1.
This is not a simple world!
