under GNOME 3.0.2 Desktop, Evolution is showing a TXT composed email as light-black/gray tone, while an HTML composed email appears with a better, brilliant, darker black.
They are both black. What makes the "plain text" one look lighter is a combination of things:
* Hinting, antialiasing, and all the parameters of font rendering.
* Gamma used for antialiasing.
This is a *deep* rathole - if you start looking into it, expect to get drawn in as in a black hole, with little chance of ever coming back ;)
(If you configure Evolution to use a larger font, you'll see that it is indeed black.)
