Well what's being discussed is the _default_, and as I said, I think
the current colors (on a black background) are just about right ---
they stand out enough to be somewhat noticeable, but not so much as to
interfere with reading.

[I disagree about Gnus BTW:  I see highlighted escapes in messages
_now_, and really like it; usually it's some dimwit using microsoft
"quotes" etc., and seeing them earlier allows me to run
`gnus-summary-treat-dumbquotes' before I start reading.]
