KDE 4.3.3: How to change the colour of selected menu items?

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello. I am running Fedora 11 and KDE 4.3.3. I dislike the colour that is used to highlight the currently selected item in the drop-down menus of KDE 4 applications (such as Kate, Konsole, Amarok and the Kile beta). I want to set it to a colour that makes the selected item stand out more. But I cannot figure out which colour setting I need to adjust. I am looking in System Settings -> Look & Feel -> Appearance -> Colors -> Colors, but the list of colour settings is not very user friendly. I cannot figure out what the various lines mean. I see nothing that says "Selected menu item background" or anything of the sort. (I have tried changing "Selection Background" under "Common Colors". That one affects selected text, but not drop-down menus.) Can anyone help me find the color setting I need to adjust? Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
