It's looking good Cliff.
Thanks Keith. I just need to decide some minor, barely noticeable things now, like window frame color(a soft teal or a more highlighted cyan. The frame is just as veeeeery thin line, so...)
I've decided on giving "active boarder's" cyan and "inactive boarder's teal. Notice the fine, bright, cyan line around active elements? It's really noticeable in Character Map. I kind of like that touch, if I may say so myself.
And I'm tuning the gradients to be more subtle, and hardly noticeable.
