Theme selection

A contrived example of some colored output.

Table of Contents

This article contains (contrived) examples of all the markup that gets presented in different colors by default today. You are, of course, free to add your own CSS which uses color in other places. The primary purpose of this document is to test various themes, so it’s most useful if the theme picker is enabled.

This is a paragraph of ordinary text.1

Sections follow, just for the titles. Revision markpmarkup is also coloured.

This is a phrase with the error class.

This is a paragraph with the debug class.

Here is a remark. The keycap rendering has a drop shadow. There’s also color in code.

  |Line one
  |Line two                                                   
  |Line three                                                 
  |Line four

There’s also the “monochrome” listing:

   |(defun ndw/insert-date-time (with-tz)
   |  "Insert current date-time string in ISO 8601 format.
   |If WITH-TZ is nil, the time is printed without the timezone;
   |if WITH-TZ is t, the time is printed with the timezone;
   |if WITH-TZ has any other value, that value is interpreted as
   |a timezone and the current time in that timezone is inserted.
   |Example: 2010-11-29T23:23:35-08:00"
   |  (interactive)
   |  (let ((tz (cond ((eq with-tz nil) nil)
   |                  ((eq with-tz t) (current-time-zone))
   |                  (t (current-time-zone () with-tz)))))
   |    (insert
   |     (if (eq tz nil)
   |         (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%dT%T")
   |       (concat
   |        (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%dT%T" () tz)
   |        ((lambda (x) (concat (substring x 0 3) ":" (substring x 3 5)))
   |         (format-time-string "%z" () tz)))))))
