Doesn't seem to stick between sessions and also is set only for an individual source window at a time. I guess that hasn't been important to me.

By the way, I find that yellow very annoying since I can't read the information even if I want too. I prefer a light gray so my eye usually skims over the information but it's still readable if necessary. Take a look at sub-sub-section 2.1.6 for an example of the syntax coloring I use. If you like it you can download it from my new site, <https://herbs.github.io>. The site mentioned in that document will go away on October 3, 2016.

Good Luck,
