Hey Prot,

a minor usability detail - it would be great if the current day headline
in the weekly Org agenda could stand out a little bit more. Sometimes
when moving around in the agenda I get lost a little bit.
The current day uses the same background as hl-line, which is too dim
for my taste. (For hl-line I like the subtle highlight since it is only
supposed as a small visual aid to locate the cursor more quickly.)

Good point!  Here the highlighting must call attention to itself, unlike
the default hl-line.

Do you think we should just use a bit more intense grey?  Otherwise we
can try we a [subtle] coloured background.

Personally, I do not like a prominent grey background with a coloured
foreground in such a tight space.  It gives the perception that the
colour is too desaturated.

I will try everything, of course.  Just want to read your thoughts on
the matter, in case you have any preference. 

[ The surface area matters as it changes the perception. ]

All the best,
Prot

I would like to have some color, either colored foreground or colored
background. A gray background only seems a bit to subtle. I don't have a
particular design in mind, - I just wanted to put this up for
discussion. Probably you have some precedent in other areas which can be
adapted.

Understood!

Does this modest change from bg-inactive to bg-special-cold add enough
colour?  It is blue/grey now but maybe it is enough?

If not, we will go for a more pronounced colour.

[ I will also refill those lines separately. ]
