The validation use-cases for alloy:inputText , alloy:inputTextarea, and alloy:inputSecret (maybe others as well) do not color FacesMessage as red when validation fails.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deploy showcase-webapp.war and visit the following URL:
2. Enter an invalid email address and click "Submit"
If the bug still exists, then the "Invalid E-Mail Address" error message will be black.
If the bug is fixed, then it will be red.
