Blue Highlighting

Can I suggest using a colour other than blue for highlighting areas of text in this document. Considering that links are the same colour, it would make the page more readable. Green perhaps? Hellboy1975 01:02, 22 November 2007 (CET)

Yes, good point. I was reviewing it last night and the same point occurred to me (but I was too idle to do anything about it <g>). Actually, in truth, the problem is rather that I think blue is a really good color for it and couldn't think of another with the same combination of emphasis, clarity and umm... lack of "shoutiness" (red is too "shouty" for instance). What colour would you (or anybody else) suggest? Mike 09:53, 22 November 2007 (CET)
There, changed it to midnightblue - how well does that work do you think?
Oh, you did suggest a colour: green (Doh! when will I learn to read things through?), but I am using green for comments (the Studio default), which I think also need to stand out.
The midnight blue is better, and I can understand the hesitation in using green and red. Not enough colours in the rainbow!Hellboy1975 13:18, 22 November 2007 (CET)
After you've used up RGB all that's left is mixtures and intensities... makes you wonder how those artist wallahs manage... ;-) On the same general tack, I've started a Style Guide discussion on the main discussion page to see if we can't come up with some agreed conventions. I am not wedded to any particular way of doing it - I just want it to (a) be clear and comprehensible and (b) look nice. Mike 14:57, 22 November 2007 (CET)
