color scheme
It should be *easy* to tweak the colors,
just tweak the numbers based on this chart:


also see:
:help hl-<highlight-group>  and
:help highlight-groups

calmar256{light,dark}.vim generates the same color for you gvim, like in your 256 color terminal.


(Note: you may need a proper $TERM variable set, so that termcap/terminfo
knows it's a 256 color terminal. E.g. TERM=xterm-256color in xterm's case. but
especially set t_Co=256 in your .vimrc so vim knows about what you want.)
