    Remark about Navigation tabs and the text color options

    When tab is selected (has been clicked), it's easy, there are some display options for "selected" tabs
    Css class: navTab forums selected
    Style Properties: Header and Navigation =>Selected Tab

    When tab is not yet selected (hasn't been clicked) but with a mouseover and a popup displayed the color can be controled with this property
    Css class: navTab showcase Popup PopupControl PopupContainerControl PopupOpen
    Style Properties: Header and Navigation => Navigation Tab
    Now when popup is closed (normal state), there's no option to change the text color. Well there are, but none of them work.

    Let's have a look inside the template "navigation.css"
        /* ---------------------------------------- */
        /* unselected tab, popup closed */
        .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed .navLink
            color: @primaryLighter;
            .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed:hover
                background-color: @primaryMedium;
                .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed .navLink:hover
                    color: @textCtrlBackground;
    => The text color is not controlled by any of the tabs or popups options but directly by global setting of the color palette.

    It could have been instead for example:
    Style Properties: Popup Menus => Popup Control (closed, hover)
    Style Properties: Header and Navigation => Navigation Tab

    I think it would have made more sense.
