Epsteyn, it's somewhat similar to color transparency: if you have multiple highlight groups, and one of them defines one or more text attributes and has "continue processing" set, then, if the subsequent group has "inherit" set, its text attributes will be merged with the attributes defined in the previous group.

Understood.
Is there any help file or online manual to learn how the file highlight options functions operate?

F1 in various dialogs & menus (could be quite outdated).

the "color" submenu (which contains the new styles option) does not have a help option. It would be very helpful to have it.

Thank you, added.
Thank you for the hotkeys as well!
Is it hard to make the hotkeys of Foreground and Background work as expected (that is, give focus to the respective palette control)? Currently, they seem to have no effect…

Not really, 5880.
Note: the effect is different in the transparency-aware dialog version, e.g. in files highlighting.
