Yeah tried All Hallow's Eve, quite similar, but little differences,  
the current line is some browny/yellow that makes the light blue  
impossible to read, I thought, no worries i'll just change that  
colour, so I went through all the options in Theme Editor, but  
couldn't find the variable to change.

well not really, updates aren't made until you leave the scheme  
editor, so it makes changing colours a tedious trial by error process.
perhaps i'm just doing it the wrong way..
