Hi.

I find the line coloring features in the output pane very useful.
In general I use [ !> ]' and [ !< ] to indicate function calls and function returns.
The ' > ' and ' < ' are of course nice character for this.
And the leading ' ! ' I use ... well mainly because the ' < ' character is not a special line-color character. And having it be black. (witch if the color of most of the output in general. don't works that well (in my case of course)

So my request/suggestion is for the ' < ' character to be also a line-coloring character.
As ' > ' is light blue (or just blue). and in respect to this suggested possible use, I was thinking that the ' < ' could be dark blue. (mid way between black and the ' > ' color. (with same style as for the ' > ' character of course.)

Well, thats it.
Hope you give it some though.
Thanks.

(Not sure about the Category, so left that on 'None'.)

    The most common occurrence of lines starting with '<' is when performing a 'diff' on files. Committed a change to use SCE_ERR_DIFF_DELETION (12) for lines starting with '<', similar to lines starting with '-' which is used for line deletions in the 'context' mode of diff. This will show as cyan in the default colour scheme.
