Bug Description

light-themes, Ubuntu Natty
light-themes, Ubuntu Pangolin

The only distinction between the title of an open menu and the title of a closed one is an outline drawn in a slightly different shade of black.

This makes it difficult to tell which menu is open (especially at the trailing end of the menu bar, where several menus hug the edge of the screen), and it is inconsistent with the highlighting used for submenu titles and other menu items.

The simple solution is to use the same white-on-orange highlighting for menu titles as you do for menu items.

Was this fixed in the final Natty design and currently not implemented in Oneiric? Or was the final design for Natty still not up to par?

It's just as bad in Oneiric as it is in 11.04.

I currently can't figure out how to fix this without putting more bright orange (would look really ugly)
