I have no idea what tikz is doing:


\definecolor[dark] [s=1,a=1,t=0.95]

\defineframedtext[normal] [width=4cm, background=color]
\defineframedtext[reverse][width=4cm, background={foreground,color}]

\tikz\fill[color=blue] (0,0) circle (.2cm);
\startMPcode fill fullcircle scaled (.4cm) withcolor \MPcolor{blue}; \stopMPcode


\startnormal[backgroundcolor=light] \getbuffer \stopnormal
\startnormal[backgroundcolor=dark] \getbuffer  \stopnormal


\startreverse[backgroundcolor=light] \getbuffer \stopreverse
\startreverse[backgroundcolor=dark] \getbuffer  \stopreverse
