I just tested this and it works perfectly. When I change the Highlight color using the Appearance pane of the Mac OS X System Preferences the color of highlighted text in Safari is immediately the right color as soon as I switch back to Safari.
Your comment, “[WebKit changes] the colour to the default blue the next time it resolves style” makes it sound like the code doesn’t work, but it works well and it is a success story!
