Most colours that psppire displays are the default widget colours, which are
dependent upon the user's theme.

The syntax highlighting is controlled entirely by the GtkSoruceView library.  
Presumably we could change the colours but I'd prefer to use the default
ones that they specify.

I think its a good suggestion to use this palatte for the data categories
of plots.  Please file a wishlist bug.  (Incidently we haven't used plotutils
for sometime.  Currently our plots are renderered directly using cairo).

     It is the same color palette I used for the new artwork for PSPP and the 
color palette is used by many other OpenSource projects.

     Examples of use:

     → When you open an HTML file from a web browser (Firefox), the default 
style displays a gray background in the row/column title 
( This 
seems very dark gray. 
     I recommend: #eeeeec or #d3d7cf

     → Colors for plots generated by "plotutils" in PSPP.

     → Colors for syntax highlighting.

     This idea stems that many PSPP users working in academic or 
professionalarea, and any small improvement in the visualization of the output 
data can be very welcome. PSPP also gives coherence and elegance in its design.
