Code box text colour suggestion/request

The original thread has gone stale (the poll finished last year), so I thought, why not pop up a new poll as there are a lot of members who have joined since the original thread was posted.

I have a small suggestion with regards to the "code" snippet highlight. It's lime green, its font size is small and therefore definitely hard on the eye.May I suggest a less hurtful green, or perhaps any other (non-fluorescent) colour?
Code: Select all
* example snippet
* example 1
* example 2
* example 3

If people want to vote to change it to one of your alternative suggestions they can, or they can cast a vote to say they'd prefer to keep the current green ... or choose to specify another colour entirely.
I've set it to run for a month. Let's see what the outcome is ...

For comparison, this green shade is still a bit too light for me. (008000)
For me, either of the two darker green shades above, or the blue * example 3 is okay with me.
