Re: shading after column x

Anyone have any ideas of how this could be done?  I'm not looking for
someone to reply with lisp code (although that would be ok), but I
don't know where to start.  I've got the emacs manual just like
everyone else, but I've never done any lisp programming.  However, I
am a programmer, so I didn't think this should be an impossible task.
Plus, I think it's time to take my relationship with emacs to the next
level.

Just a reference to a keyword or two to look at in the manual or a
pointer to something similar on emacswiki would be great.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Arthur
