Syntax Highlighting in Programming Editors [tech]
I don't like IDE's. I don't like syntax highlighting in editors -- i.e. use different colors for different syntatic elements in a programming source file. Use green for keywords, brown for operators, etc. It is like having verbs, nouns and other element types in English high lighted when you do word processing [ That feature is available in MS Word XP 2002 version ].
Someone that uses syntax highlighting commented to me that he switches it off sometimes because the color contract is bad for his eyes.
