To add to my original post:  The cursor and mouse probably have
separate foreground and background colors, with two colors for
highlights.  These would flesh out the color scheme nicely!  :)

If one doesn't want to mess with the preview window, because "it's
supposed to be a preview of a printed page," then how about a
reverseVideo switch at least?
