How do I change the color of quoted text in a composition?

In Tools>Options>Config Editor I have changed mail.citation_color and msgcompose.text_color to an obvious color like yellow with no results. I restartd TB after making these changes to make sure they were adopted (is this necessary?). Still basic blue quotes in composition window, however when the composition is opening it seems like the quote flashes yellow for a split second before turning blue. Is this my imagination? What variable controls this color?

I found the standard edit text color and background under Tools>Options>Display>HTML Messages. However it appears to work for compositions in plain text too. Why does the HTML Messages display options affect the composition editor?
