Sorry for my lack of clarity, the boxquote is my doing... what I'm
attempting to ask about is how that author colors the background green
for the portion I have boxquoted above.

That is:  In post Message-ID: <address@hidden> (on gmane.emacs.help),
Michael Heerdegen has somehow caused the bit below to appears with
medium green background.

  (defun my-find-file-around-ad (origfun &rest args)
    (interactive
     (find-file-read-args "Open file: "
                          (confirm-nonexistent-file-or-buffer)))
    (apply origfun args))
  
  (advice-add 'find-file :around #'my-find-file-around-ad)

I'd like to know how that is done.

boxquote.el does not appear to offer anything related to color.  At
least the word `color' or `background' do not appear in it.
