Hello folks!

Is there any way to use platform-default colors, or custom color constants in E4 css declarations?

Something like this:

Text.valid {
    background-color: SWT.COLOR_LIST_BACKGROUND;

Text.invalid {
    background-color: #f00;
    color: #fff;

// or

Text.invalid {
    background-color: invalid-background;
    color: invalid-foreground;

// and something like this:

engine.defineColorConstant("invalid-background", "#f00");

Or is there any other way to erase all styles applied to a widget an let platform defaults apply?
