below is some rough material, hope may help


One of the 1st thing to configure in emacs are the colors for the various kinds
of text. Finding settings that are good for your eyes is likely to depend also
on the different monitors.

eg  I didn't feel good with the orange comments in the perl and shell
modes on my  LG Flatron F900P  monitor .  Saying

    M-x list-faces-display

helped me to discover that  font-lock-comment-face  was set to  orangered  : 
looking 'round  .emacs  I found

    (set-background-color "darkslategray")
        ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom -- don't edit or cut/paste it!
        ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
     '(font-lock-comment-face ((t (:foreground "orangered"))))

Then I looked for a color better than  orangered  ; with 

   M-x list-colors-display ; for a display of all the color names and how they 
look like 

I could experience the available hundreds of colors on my darkslategray 
background ; I
picked  LemonChiffon4  (making comments looking quite dimmed, which is good for 
who mess their programs with lots of out-commended debris code)
and  put it in place of  orangered  in the .emacs lines above 
(by naive editing iof accessing via customization buffer, a dirty way I don't 
to choose ;-) - wonderful !
