I love using light-text-on-dark-background color schemes for as many programs as I can.
However, I don't use a light-on-dark theme for Windows XP itself, because many Windows programs do not play well with that, and become anything between ugly and unusable under such a theme.
However, I have now started using a new program, namely SmartGit, that takes its colors from the active Windows theme. I would like to make SmartGit look light-on-dark, but the only way to do that would be to change the Windows theme, which is something I don't want to do, because it'll affect all my other programs.
So the question is: Is it possible to "fool" SmartGit into thinking that the Windows theme is set to be light-on-dark, even though it's not? Kind of like running it in a sandbox?
If it helps, SmartGit is written in Java and its GUI is based on SWT.
