color scheme
:VoodooChild            - change certain setting dynamically.
:VoodooChild (no args)  - displays current settings
:VoodooChild bold?      - diplays current value of bold. works similarly for all options.
:VoodooChild bold!      - toggles bold value for 'categorical' colors
:VoodooChild underline! - toggles the appearance of Underlined.
                          voodooChild.vim uses Underlined as an additional color
                          without the underline as default.
                          If you want the Underline back, turn it back on.
:VoodooChild ignore!    - toggles the appearance of Ignore'd text
                          from nearly invisible to invisible, ie. same color as background.
:VoodooChild conceal!   - toggles the appearance of Conceal'd text
                          from Comment to Ignore.

This means ... you can dynamically make Conceal'd text invisible, nearly
invisible or appear as a Comment in both gui and xterm-256 environments.

This colorscheme is designed to reduce eyestrain by using a much lower contrast
than black on white. voodooChild is a very low contrast colorscheme that is most
appropriate for low light conditions.

Includes several palettes of color, support for RainbowLevels and Vimwiki
headers. This is a toolkit for anyone who wants to play around with such

Gui color support is complete. Includes the latest highlight commands from 801.

In your vimrc file put (for example),
    VoodooChild bold 0
    VoodooChild underline 1
to establish your own preferences.

The 'categorical' colors are the colors which are used by syntax files to match
linguistic elements.  'Categorical' colors are treated as an ad hoc linguistic
heat map. In order of 'heat' they are..

    PreProc - includes Delimiter as a remap

The emphasis - yellow - is placed upon 'Type'.
The rest of the colors are 'interface' colors.
