I start to get familiar with glade and quickly but one thing I can't figure out. How can I set colors, e.g. background colors or label font colors? Can I do this in Glade or do I have to do it in Python?

Specifically for labels, there is an Attributes property in the general tab (about half way down) where you can set formatting options.
