        Thanks for this.  I'll check it out when I'm less crushed!  Just
        one note to the list (in case anybody else it looking for
        attractive/fitting #xxxxxx codes): dark, black-ish blue #000033
        is very good and pleasant on the eyes; #333366 even more so.

        I'm still open to the bg color.  The display white is not true,
        paper-white.  Anyway, pretty sure the ink+paper publishers have
        their own [[ BETTER ]] ideas.  I'm looking for what looks good on
        the web.

        gary
