script type
color scheme
Midnight is a colorscheme with a dark blue background and light blue foreground.  It is designed to keep contrast at a minimum.  It is the same as midnight2.vim (vimscript #424).  I will attempt to keep both up to date with the same version of the colorscheme.
install details
Download and place in ~/.vim/colors.  Then type ":color midnight".  I also highly recommend you place "color midnight" in your ~/.vimrc.  :)

midnight.vim 2.5 2006-12-05 7.0 Michael Brailsford Major update to the midnight colorscheme.  This version features much subdued colors.  The background is much darker.  The contrast has been dialed way back.  This version adds updates for vim7 and vimdiff.  This is the same as version 2.5 of midnight2.
midnight.vim 1.4 2002-04-10 6.0 Michael Brailsford Made the semicolon toggle mapping more intuitive.  Now it is mapped to <leader>;, instead of <leader>sc.
midnight.vim 1.3 2002-04-06 6.0 Michael Brailsford Made the colorscheme more complete.  Now the status line is highlighted differently for the current buffer, and I changed a few other highlighting this to round out the colorscheme.  Also added a function to toggle the semicolon highlighting feature off and on with an nmap.  Very handy for c/c++, java, etc...
midnight.vim 1.2 2002-03-31 6.0 Michael Brailsford Removed the semicolon highlighting at the end of lines.  It didn't work right anyway.
midnight.vim 1.0 2002-03-25 6.0 Michael Brailsford Initial upload
