IIUC, for xxxxxx (the highlight group name) almost any keyword is
_permitted_, but a name is only useful if it is _used_ somewhere.
- Some groups are predefined by Vim:
- Some others, even without a help entry, are defined by :syntax on:
- Some more are defined by the various syntax scripts, usually (but not
always: see for instance htmlBold, htmlItalic, etc.) by linking to one
of Vim's default groups:
etc. etc. etc.
- You may use any existing name (including a new one that you define
yourself) for matching:
For cccc, the color name, some names are permitted for ctermbg=
ctermfg=; the same, plus many more, are permitted for guibg= guifg=
First, in the console: see
Numbers from 0 to one less than 't_Co' are permitted (but they don't
mean the same everywhere: for instance 1 means red on the Linux console,
but blue on the Dos console), and also the names listed in that help topic.
For the GUI, the list can be obtained by looking at the file rgb.txt. On
Unix/Linux, you probably already have one but its location varies from
one distro to the next, you may have to search. On Windows, you may or
may not have one in $VIMRUNTIME for use by gvim. On Windows, OS-defined
names are also permitted, see
In addition, in the GUI, colors can be defined as #xxxxxx where xxxxxx
are six hex digits (no more, no less): two for the red component, then
two for the green component, then two for the blue component.
"Abbreviated" values with only three hex digits, as used in HTML and
CSS, are not accepted by Vim.
Nihilism should commence with oneself.
