Sounds like lunch might be skipped due to some lack of clarity of mind...

possible..  :-)  but look where decades of "sober" society is leading.  time
perhaps for (Churchillian) "I never drink -- before breakfast."

"sober" society!? Nowadays?! By Jove, what would the alternative look 
like? ;-)

[thesis: breakfast can /never/ be /too/ early]

hi,

am finalising an updated version of 'Tabulated()', which adds highlighting of
cell(s); the demo image uses the 'Digits' array from
'/scenes/language/arrays/array2.pov'.  am not too sure about the "tint", and ask
for suggestions for a 'rgbf' colour value that would go well with the defaults.


regards, jr.

Typical highlight/background colors might be white, green, orange, yellow, blue,
magenta, etc.

Depending on if the text is black or white, you may want a dark "highlight" - so
a dark version of the above.

I usually use examples from well-developed software packages or presentations to
draw inspiration when I hit a mental / aesthetic block.

Maybe open up LibreOffice / OpenOffice Calc and see what works, or just do a web
image search for "spreadsheet" and see what works.

Depending on what the final render application is, you may want to consider
adding rgbt 1, or not rendering the background box at all, to allow for
transparent backgrounds with that +ua setting.

I could also envision a need for an rgbf color, say if someone was using a table
to annotate an image or something like that.

Heck.  Tabulated () could be used to make a chess game animation, highlighting
the current piece and destination square / options....  ;)

"block" yes, good advice.  I did just that, Google Images "spreadsheet", and
found pretty much every colour used for highlighting.  :-)

decided to use '<.65,.65,.9,.975>', another blue.

good point.  have not tried yet with alpha-channel, but made a todo note.
