just an fyi, I would give a word of caution here : faces are or can be
very hairy places to be especially for someone new to emacs;) There are
quite a few themes available with the color-theme package -
subtle-hacker ( I think it is) was nice for me, but recently I dumped
that color-theme sw completely and now use the excellent naquadah-theme
which can show you what to do if you want to make your own:-

http://git.naquadah.org/?p=naquadah-theme.git;a=summary

At the very least this will give you some idea of the scale of the task!


Best of luck
