[pygtk] Need help with Tree/List view

Hello All,

I am currenly using the gtk TreeView to display text (simple and markedup), 
pixbufs, dropdown list and editable text in my application.
Not all the columns are editable. Lets say the 1st, 4th and 7th columns are 
editable and others (besides the dropdownlist) are not. 
Now my question is. How do I indicate to the user which cell in the row is 
editable. If he/she has selected a particular row, then there is no clear 
indication that the particular cell he/she has clicked on or has navigated to, 
can be edited. Is there a way to select/highlight one cell at a time ( like in 
a spreadsheet )?? By default it draws a box around the text of the editable 
cell  (due to the editable mode) while moving from cell to cell, but this box 
is not visible because the row higlight color is dark enough to hide it. 
Any suggestions ???
