dcthats an interesting thread - and I like the way you used blue for the answers!

NanashiAmatuka, if you make the answer text the same color as the background color, you can achieve the same effect. As it stands, the unhighlighted answer text is somewhat painful to look at, even though one is not supposed to be able to see it before highlighting it.
