It's not easy seeing green

Ross Boylan
I find the coloring of body text (the stuff after :) as light green very
hard to read.  I'm not color-blind as far as I know.  I'd like it to be
something with more contrast (against the white background), maybe a
dark green.

Is this color specific to vo, vim, or my distribution (Debian)?  How do
I change it?  I'm not very familiar with customizing vim.

Thanks.

Ross,

:he vo-color will help. I have personally changed mine to dark green. If
the instructions are confusing, please let me know so I can clear them up.  
I can also send you my personal color configuration file.

I get "Sorry, no help for vo-color" when I do that.  Nor do I see an
entry when I do :he vo.

I'm using the Debian package vim-vimoutliner 0.3.3-6.

I take it the color is vo-specific.

Thanks for your kind offer.  I'll see if I can manage with just one
tweak.

Perhaps the default should be changed?

Re: It's not easy seeing green

Hmm, I put
"Body Text Colors
hi BT1 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT2 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT3 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT4 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT5 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT6 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT7 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT8 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen
hi BT9 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=darkgreen

first in /etc/vim/vimoutlinerrc and then in
~/.vimoutlinerrc (it was ctermfg=green before I made the changes),
exiting and reentering vim each time.  It made no difference in the
color of the body text.  However, when I :source'd the file from inside
the edit window for the outline, it did work.

/etc/vim/vimoutlinerrc is disabled on Debian according to the release
notes, but I thought the fact that every line was commented out was a
reflection of that.  Maybe it's not parsed at all.
(In other words, that file originally had
"hi BT1 guifg=darkgreen ctermfg=green
and so on.)
