Highlight color or text color?

The latest Gmail compose lacks highlighting altogether combines the text color and the highlight (background) color into a single button. I guess it was only used to emphasize the emotions of LOL cats. Shrug. Not a killer feature, and I’m glad I’ll never click on the wrong one button again; despite being a regular Gmail user since 2004, I would click the wrong text color / highlight color about 40% of the time.

Apparently, this feature was troublesome to implement; I’m glad it’s in the bit bucket… for now.
