For the last 30 odd years I've used yellow and green on DarkSlateGrey
for everything I can, across hp-ux/solaris/linux platforms. It is a balm
for eyes which begin to hurt after an hour or two of the glare of a
white background.

That'd work fine with DarkSlateGrey. ;-)

OK, that's DarkSlateGray in hew-hess-hay, but it's in /etc/X11/rgb.txt too.
