Today I share with you my XML file for code colorization in Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 and higher. I will talk about the benefits of working with a dark background and explain how to change Dreamweaver theme color step by step.

Benefits :

Why should we use a black background rather than a white background? It’s simple, when we spend 40 hours / week in front of a  computer (not including off-duty hours) our eyes are exposed to a lots of light, it’s important to pay attention to our health.

Choosing a dark background greatly reduces the brightness of your screen and sends less light to your eyes. I wear contact lenses and I quickly saw the difference. So I can stay focused on my work without being disturbed by itching of my eyes.
