What I'd really like to see is a consistent background color. Or rather 
consistent colors and styles. It doesn't really matter very much which 
styles or colors as long as they're consistent between syntax files. 
Though I would prefer white background and just colors (no bolds, 
underlines or italics).

Perhaps me and Jeroen should just have a shoot-out over this matter 
since it seems to me as he has the same opinion as me, though his is 
negated. ;)
