I have to see it, to be able to tell you my opinion about. So tahnk you 
for the example, nd.

I'am using a notebook, so I can tell you thats's true. Light colors are 
only shemes at a notebook diplay. A light red color would not have any 
sinaling effect there.

> what do you think about a red border? (see below for an example)

Ah, please, use solid borders, not dashed. The dashed one lets the block 
be uneasy and makes the text difficult to read.

>> <name>Name</name>
>> <syntax>Syntax ...</syntax>
>> <sourcefile>sourcefile.c</sourcefile>

<syntax> and <sourcefile> are ok (+1), but not <name>. This is used 
within the headers and looks terrible.

see above, -0 from me

When using a border, left and centered will both be ok for me. But 
without a border centered would be better.

This is the first time, I'm using IE instead Mozilla. Grats nd, you got 
me switching ;-)
