font color for text cannot show properly in BB 8800 simulator


I am developping a web site for blackberry, but meeting with a problem in BB 8800 simulator when setting the font color for text with background color.

When I set the background color "#5b7394" for the div and font color "#B4BDCD" for the text, the font color of the text shows not what I want, but shows another color, like blue. It seems that the blackberry browser has made some color changes.

<div style="background-color:#5b7394;color:#B4BDCD"><span>test</span></div>


However, when set the Blue for the background color, it shows properly.

<div style="background-color:Blue;color:#B4BDCD"><span>test</span></div>


Does any one know why?


BTW, it shows properly in BB 9530 simulator.

What version of the 8800 simulator are you testing with?
