In Arabic writing ّّ"vocals" are actually these small accents above  
the chars. Sorry if I got this not to the point. Ulrike's statement  
about the role of "novoc" and "fullvoc" was quite accurate.

I have tested this and, just for the records, it is quite obvious  
that arabxetex causes in some way the problems. With plain utf8 input  
inside tabularx it is possible to change color attributes without any  
side effect.
