I passionately disagree with the notion that syntax highlighting is a bad thing.

It was not meant like that. Personally, I made the experience that I can work without it in languages which are not JavaScript or C#, but I can also see why some people wouldn't touch an editor without syntax highlighting.

In VS Code (one of the text editors I'm using - yes, I'm definitely using too many editors...) I have a very simple theme: Comments are light grey, code is dark grey, keywords are italic.
