Thanks

John,

Many people who have upgraded to a 2003 device, may have noticed that the
font color in the Windows Start Menu is white, and can’t be changed even
when downloading Microsoft’s Theme Editor this requires a workaround by
creatinge the theme in MS Theme Generator(which hasn't been upgraded for
2003) and save it to your PC at the end instead of having it load the
theme, just copy it directly to your PPC into the My Documents or the
Windows directory.

The folks at BVRP(http://www.bvrp.com/ENG/products/pocketThemeManager/)
also have a solution to this problem called Pocket Theme Manager that
allows you change the text to any color you want) as well as giving you
the ability to switch out themes on your PocketPC at will.

If are confident in hacking your registry you can change the start menu
text color through the following registry key:

"HKLM\Software\Microsoft \Color", "39" (REG_BINARY), The data "00 00 00
00" will change the color to black.

If you are uncomfortable editing your registry, there are also some other
utilities out there that will do this like Mauricio mentioned, Ctitanic's
