Colorizing Header Fields
[table of contents] [index]
A set of resources specifies colors and other font
attributes of a message header.
For example, here's what I
have in my ~/.exmh-defaults file:
This is a list of mail header fields which have
special looks when displayed in the message area.
For each tagname, you should define another resource named
(for example, m_subject).
This m_tagname resource has the text tag configuration options
for its header field.
You'll find the tag configuration options in
the manual page for the Tk text widget.
Two special tagnames are used for defaults if there
isn't a more specific matching tag name:
"default" applies to displayed fields and "hidden" applies
to hidden fields (fields that have been scrolled off the top).
*m_tagnames: hidden subject from x-filters-matched
*m_hidden: -font 6x10
*m_default: -foreground black
*m_subject: -foreground blue
*m_x-filters-matched: -foreground blue
*m_from: -foreground "medium sea green"
