color scheme
This is a light theme I use for coding.
Background is very light grey, special things are green or blue, this is for gui only and uses italic for some things (which I find very nice as its makes gvim look less console-like).

install details
Copy this file to your private or public colors-directory.
Under Linux the following should work: mkdir -p ~/.vim/colors; cp pyte.vim ~/.vim/colors
If in doubt use instructions of any other colors-package they should work too, or read
the vim help about colorscheme-files.

As this theme only defined highlight-groups for the vim-gui, you might want to use a different one for textmode.
To do this, simply put "colors my_console_scheme" into your .vimrc-File and "colors pyte" ingot your .gvimrc file.

pyte.vim 1.2.2 2010-07-03 7.0 Henning Hasemann Little color fixes
pyte.vim 1.2.1 2006-06-13 6.0 Henning Hasemann - Fixed issue with Error-color, if you used cursorline before, errors got white-on white, now foreground color for errors is red which schould cause your attention on every of my defined background colors.
pyte.vim 1.2 2006-06-08 6.0 Henning Hasemann Added support for some new features in vim:
- CursorLines
- TabLine
- Pmenu (auto-completion)

Note that this colorscheme does not (and will propably never) *require* VIM v7, as vims-scripting language provides conditionals to query the version.
So it should look (at your opinion) nice with VIM6 and VIM7 now.
pyte.vim 1.1 2006-06-08 6.0 Henning Hasemann Defined colors for diff-view (vim -d)
pyte.vim 1.01 2006-06-06 6.0 Henning Hasemann Made NonText Foreground grey so the "~" signs on an empty document dont look that ugly anymore
pyte.vim 1.0 2006-03-12 6.0 Henning Hasemann Initial upload
