Site color variables

Site highlight color

The entire color scheme of MindTouch is based on the @highlight-color variable. It is used to generate all color highlights found in links, highlight containers, tables, tabs, etc, as well as generating all the shades of grey used for different container types and secondary links. Changing this variable's value will affect the colors used across the entire site.
