Thanks for bringing this up, it has been on my ToDo list forever.

I need a new color for this and for Note. Note is currently the green 
and I think that may be overusing the green a bit to much.

Good, I'm glad to hear the current version is going over well for your 
color blind friends. I agree about the ads, they stand out and are 
distracting but as far as I know we have no control over that.

We already have red for warning and blue for code, I'll try out a few 
combinations and post the ones I think look best. If anyone has any 
suggestions please post them. I'll try a grey background and see how 
that looks but I want it to be consistant so it should be for note and 
warning too.
