      Error detected while processing cols.vim:
      line 12:
      Not an editor command: guibg=black

      Please pardon what must be a newbie problem.

        Looks like a word wrap problem of a mail application, these
        lines should be at the end of the previous lines.

        The line above should be at the end of the previous line.

        > >hi ColEven gui=NONE cterm=NONE ctermfg=green guifg=green ctermbg=blue
        > >guibg=blue

        Same here, the line above should be at the end of the previous line.

          I agree with Aschwin Marsman; your email client is doing things for
          (to?) you, ie. word wrapping. Doesn't help with code. Both of the
          "guibg=black"s should be on the end of the previous line, not on new
          lines of their own.

          The easiest thing would just be edit the file and to appropriately
          join the lines that need joining. Alternatively, apply uudecode and
          gunzip to the stuff between ----s below:

          ---------------------------------------------------------------------
