Toolkit theme overrides foreground? Why and how?

    General discussion

  • I have SL 5 project where I didnt have time for proper styling. So I applied famous toolkit themes. I never worked with 3d party themes before.

    So what I see seems a bug to me.

    A page foreground is white. And I see white in text blocks in VS design mode and in the Blend. When I run the app it shows dark gray - blackish text...

After I applied theming the text in the boxes is now have solid white background... And I cant figure how can it happen. I have explicitely made certain things to be one way and it is being overriden and I dont get how it is possible.

    Theme is SystemColors and applied in app.xaml like this:
