Confluence 4.0: change page comparison highlight color?

Is there some way to change the highlight color when comparing page versions? I find the default pale green for added text kind of hard to see.

Browse to: Confluence Admin | Look and Feel | Stylesheet and add

#com-atlassian-confluence .diff-html-added {
    background-color: limegreen;
    border-color: limegreen;
  }  
  #com-atlassian-confluence .diff-html-removed {
    background-color: hotpink;
    border-color: hotpink;  
  }
  #com-atlassian-confluence .diff-html-changed {
    background-color: aqua;
    border-color: aqua;  
  }

If that doesn't work, try: Space Admin | Look and Feel | Stylesheet

This will liven up all the diff changes. Remove the ones you don't need.

We have an open improvement task internally to improve the colour scheme of the diff view (but until we get around to it, David's hack looks good :) )

Can this be done in Cloud as well? I don't have a Stylesheet option... only Colour Scheme.
