    By editing the ~/.AbiSuite/AbiWord.Profile file (which resides elsewhere
    on win32), adding lines (with hexadecimal RGB color values) such as the
    below to the _custom_ Scheme region;


    The following settings may be of interest:
     ColorShowPara: Show Paragraph rendering color
     ColorSquiggle: Squiggle color
     ColorSelBackground: Selection highlight color
     ColorFieldOffset: Color offset(*) for fields
     ColorHyperLink: Color of hyperlinks
     ColorRevision1-ColorRevision10: Colors used by the revision code


    *: A field is rendered with a background (or selection highlight) color
    that is offset from the normal background(/selection highlight) color by
    this setting. The offset is subtracted. So to make fields stand out
    (darker), set to something like the default of "0c0c0c". To make fields
    look like the other text, set to "000000". To make lighter, set to
    "f4f4f4" (relevant for people using bright text on dark backgrounds).
