  DARts Color Coding


High pink is for dates, times and deadlines.

Gray is for my opinions, which are often indented and captions.

Green is editorial notices and point-to locations

This bright red is for caution notes and/or "confusing" punctuation.

"Text enclosed in bright red quotation marks indicates words we do not wish to have credit for ... Stuff quoted directly from the source — not anything I or we said."
