Strange, but very hard sometime in the life ;-) . I'm red and green 
color blind, I never see the eyes of my wife they are green, I see like

Yes for me the blue would be perfect and ok
Attention that satisfy me :-) but no other color blind and I don't want 
only for me, that would be not correct for other people and so I think
red color blind
green color blind
yellow color blind
orange color blind (this is a derivate)
Than other person that see black and with
I could not explain like i see the color but you can imagine that i see 
garden in gray, some red i see, some other not,green for me is out ;-), 
so I would say tath the color settable in the preference had be if 
possible free, like selecting the color of the piece.

Yes for example for the person tath see only black and white only the 
color and the font could be help very good.

Yes I copy also the mailing list with my notation color for have a 
better idea's perhaps.
And finally thank's to all for your work and for the attention to my 
little problem, for the little problem of other color blind, for the 
big problem of totally color blind, in they world not much, and I send 
you my very special thank's and greeting in the color that you prefer.
Many thank's, best regard
