In any case, Steve, if you don't find a colorscheme exactly to your
liking, you can always "roll your own", and in that case you can write
for any or all of monochrome terminals (term=...), color console
terminals (cterm=... ctermbg=... ctermfg=...), and GUI displays (gui=...
guifg=... guibg=...). I'm attaching a very small colorscheme of mine,
which leaves most (but not all) colours at their defaults; it will
probably not be exactly what you want but you may use it as a source of
inspiration. Like all user-made colorschemes, it belongs in the colors
subdirectory of a directory listed before $VIMRUNTIME in the
'runtimepath' option setting (e.g., in $VIM/vimfiles/colors/).
