In Microsoft Word 2010 on the highlighting menu sometimes the No Color option has a coloured box next to it.

Does anyone know what this signifies?

It's just to show that "No Color" is the currently selected choice.

If I highlight some text in red and then open the highlighting menu, you'll see that the box next to "No Color" is blank:

Highlighted

If I remove the highlighting, you can see that the box next to "No Color" has some slight colouring - it's just to represent that it is selected.

Not highlighted

Yes I see. I also notice in your first screen shot that the red box has a border around it to show that it is the current choice. –  Smorgasbord May 3 '11 at 14:02
