MySQL Workbench editor highlighted text color

I have been unable to figure out how to change the text color in MySQL Workbench when the **text is highlighted**. I'm happy with all my other text and background colors in the `code_editor.xml` file (which I have just spent 2 hours customizing to resemble SQL Server Management Studio colors):

<style id= "0" fore-color="#000000" back-color="#E3DDBF" bold="No" /> <!-- SCE_MYSQL_DEFAULT -->
<style id= "1" fore-color="#008000" back-color="#E3DDBF" bold="No" /> <!-- SCE_MYSQL_COMMENT -->
<style id= "2" fore-color="#008000" back-color="#E3DDBF" bold="No" /> <!-- SCE_MYSQL_COMMENTLINE -->

It's so incredibly tedious in workbench to experiment by changing 1 color code, save, close Workbench, re-open workbench, open a connection, view a sql/text file, evaluate colors...after each change. So I'm hoping somebody will know which style element/attribute needs to change to affect the text color when that text is highlighted. *Note: The highlighted text background color is fine.*

Thanks in advance.
