Is there a remedy to the text of files in Workspaces not showing up in Chrome?

I have switched to Google Chrome for browsing today. I went to continue my lesson, but find that the Workspaces fails to show the text of my files within. I can place the cursor in the file. I can see occasional highlighting, but there is not text. It is as though the font is set to the same color as the background.

Edit: I can select all to highlight all the text. Nothing shows through the highlighting either. However I can paste all the contents to a text editor successfully.

Edit: removed image link as it died.

Workspaces works great with Chrome, so I'd be interested to see the code you're working with. Do you think you can add that to the thread? If you're having the problem still, that is.

In general, it may work in Chrome. However, the editor text is not visible for me. I was hoping for some insight as to what might be causing this. There is text present. The line count on the bottom of the workspace shows this. Copy/Paste works to an external editor. The filetree on the side works fine. It is simply as though the text in the editor is not rendered.

I've just moved all my work to my local system and will forgo the workspaces for now. The local network is acting buggy today. It is likely an artifact of that. Thank you for your time.
