[fpc-pascal] OS/2 support and text colors

Not strictly FPC related, but I know here are some OS/2 software
developers around - and I have no idea where else to ask.
I'm working on supporting OS/2 in fpGUI Toolkit and creating OS/2
themes. Looking at some of the OS/2 screenshots I have collected, I
noticed that in the same dialog you sometimes have blue text and
sometimes black text. Anybody know why, and what is the difference
between the two (other than the color alone)?
Here is an example:
The only pattern I can see is that "static text" (eg: labels and
groupbox captions) use the blue text, but Checkboxes, Buttons, Menu
Items etc use the black text. I still don't understand IBM's reasoning
behind this though - but would like to know out of curiosity.
