When selecting text the selection colour makes any comments unreadable, not a major issue, but I think it doesn't look right when you're selecting text.

Note that the behavior of text selection colors is a little different in VS2010 and VS2005/8.
In VS2005/8 you select a foreground and background color which is used for all selected text. In VS2010, you can't specify a foreground selected color -- it's retained from the foreground color of whatever text is selected. The background color seems to be blended with the background color of the selected text. (From here)
Here's what selected text looks like when I set the background color to #ff0000. The actual RGB values of the background are #661a21 (102/26/33), according to Photoshop. #ff0000 selection on a #ffffff (white) background results in an actual color of #ff9999. I'm guessing that's a 60% transparency, but don't quote me on that.
Could it not be possible to use the same style of XML comments with normal comments, so it has a similar background color on the comment like http://cl.ly/2g0x0W2f0g2j1F200i05
The problem is that when vs2010 blends the selection background color (base02) with the default background color (base3) it results in a color that is very close to the comment foreground color (base1). This means we have to do one of two things:
Use automatic color (blue) for selected text in vs2010. Addresses issue
Blue looks a lot better!
