Yep, that's what I meant. > So, I'm merely speaking about Org mode defaults.

This is quite short, the following being what I need to enable my own color theme: #+begin_src emacs-lisp ;; avoid Emacs hanging for a while changing default font (modify-frame-parameters nil '((wait-for-wm . nil))) ;; the real color theme functions (when (require 'color-theme-autoloads) ;; initialize the color theme package (if (fboundp 'color-theme-initialize) (color-theme-initialize)) ;; color themes will be installed for all frames (setq color-theme-is-global t) ;; set my default color theme (when (try-require 'color-theme-leuven) (color-theme-leuven))) #+end_src And it simply allows you to decide on every face you want to customize for yourself. > P.S.

I'm using Emacs since 1999, and now have 10,998 lines in my .emacs file. Though, every line being commented, and having a blank line between each customization, that represent more or less 3,400 real lines. That said, it's huge. But it now becomes much more feasible since I've LP'ed my .emacs file, thanks to Org Babel: now, I can put a lot of comments outside of my .emacs file, and quickly access what I need to read or update with Org's sparse trees (`C-c / /'). It is even easy to not tangle parts of Emacs custom, for debug needs, for example. Or get a nicely printed HTML output. Or... just name it, I can go on with advantages of using both Emacs and Org-mode, even heavily customized ;-) Best regards, Seb Footnotes:  Literate Programming (à la NoWeb) -- Sebastien Vauban
