So I just checked out oceandeep; that has a very nice zen quality. I'm not sure if I'd find the contrast good over long periods or late at night, but during the day I can see that being a very nice theme to work in.
I also just previewed all the TestMate built-in themes for the first time..
The ones I liked (in no particular order) :Twilight, IDLE, Expresso Libre, & Dawn. (Two light on dark, two dark on light) all three subdued colors and consistent amounts of gray mixed in).
The ones that would drive me crazy to use Brilliance Black, iPlastic, & MagicWB
Guess I'm changing from MacClassic. I'm going to give Espresso Libre a try for a few days... I wish it wasn't quite so bright, with its "accents", but I like that its not white on black for "normal" text -- I find that too high contrast for some reason. However I'm not enough of a designer to think I could tweak the colors in an intelligent way to make what I want.
If you want to see something odd, try iPlastic with LucidaCalligraphy Font
