The entry doesn't allow bold, italic, colored, etc. text; all the text
will be in the widget's default font and colors which are in
widget->style, except that selected text is in a different color (but
still taken from the style).

So what I'm saying is that there are never any interesting properties
on the text in an entry, it's just plain old text. Neither the program
nor the user can set properties on it.
