Blue variable name and black key words seem boring to me now. I find that the color scheme of this site is better. Can I apply that in my notebook?

FYI, the syntax highlighter in this site is extremely limited compared to the Mathematica front end. You can customize the colors of the built-in syntax highlighter in the menu: Edit > Preferences... > Appearance > Syntax coloring. – István Zachar Jan 6 '14 at 15:46
@IstvánZachar But I don't know which color I shall use. I want a recommended scheme. – zhangwfjh Jan 6 '14 at 15:48
There are some finetuned color schemes (e.g. Solarize), but no ready-made one-click file (at least I know of) that applies it to your Mathematica front-end. – István Zachar Jan 6 '14 at 15:50
@IstvánZachar Thanks, anyway. – zhangwfjh Jan 6 '14 at 15:52
@bills Does a stylesheet affect the syntax highlighter as well? If so, I didn't know about that! – István Zachar Jan 6 '14 at 15:59
