You could experiment with other subtle colors, it was just my suggestion. But a foreground color might be a better choice, yes.

BTW, what do "typical" other systems use as highlight for the
common part?  Is there enough agreement there that it's worth trying to
pay attention to it (kinda like the "blue" for hyperlink convention)?

IMHO we shouldn't give too much weight to those since they use a different UI anyway, but:

- VS Code uses a blue foreground (where the default is white). And the background is darkish grey. An odd combination, IMO.

- IntelliJ IDEA uses pink foreground instead of black: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/img/idea/2019.2/codeCompletionSecondClass1.png

- Atom uses bold.

- Vim doesn't highlight matching characters at all.
