Late to the party again, as usual.
But, some words of advice, RUN RUN RUN, now you have a new can of worms, or can be.
As soon as you created a "item mouse over" for the places list, text settings quit working normally. By that I mean the colors for mouseover states and such can be quite confusing to get right or to your liking.
Best option is to set all , programs and places text to "os defaults" and gradually change states and colors checking to see what you get. Also, the "skin colors" section " has some of the colors used and some are the defaults, so if you start from scratch with default text settings, then get what you can out of those "skin colors" areas first, then try altering your normal, mouse over, and pressed states after, you will make better sense of things and achieve the result you want , hopefully, not always possible.
Just some info, if you already knew, no biggie, good luck, happy skinning.
