After upgrading from Siebel IP2013 to Siebel 2014, the css style that used to "hide" the query mode "Case Sensitive" watermark no longer worked.

The following CSS was used to effectively hide the "Case Sensitive" watermark by setting the color to the same color as the element's background.

The CSS change in Siebel IP2013 worked across the application only for “Case Required” watermark text

In 'theme-gray.css', located under ..\Client_1\PUBLIC\enu\FILES (for dedicated client) or ..\SWEApp\PUBLIC\enu\files (for web client)

Find the string ‘siebui-watermark-text’ and change the color code from '#C0C0C0' to '#FFFFFF'.
  It should look like below:
  color: #FFFFFF !important;


Now in Siebel IP2014, the new theme and CSS has changed and this style is no longer used.

How can the query mode watermark "Case Sensitive" used with IP2014 be removed?
