When doing spell check in Word 2010, the text color in Spelling and Grammar suggestions defaults to white. Is there a way to change this?  I know the highlight bar color can be changed, but looking to change text to black.  Thanks.

So you mean the words that appear in the form Spelling and Grammar under Suggestions

or the ones in the contextual menu

In my Word 2010 (and any others I have used)
I have normal black text on a white background (in spelling suggestions)

Please look at item number 3 here

Are you seeing something different? If you are, you may need to repair your office installation.

Like said before this is normal behaviour,

it is only white because the background is too dark for a black font

My blue is highlight is a lot darker than your, which may be because of some
personalisation/theme changes within windows 7.
