Years ago when I was using Professional Page on an Amiga, it would show 
text in a false (complementary?) color when it matched or was close to 
the background when you were editing.  I'm not sure that's any advantage 
over how story editor works.  I would hate to see story editor get more 
complicated -- there already seem to be recurring questions asking for 
features it already has.
What I find myself doing in many cases is the quick text entry work (and 
especially justification) with story editor, then doing the font/color 
tweaks with the Properties toolbox and highlighting on the main screen.
