You are welcome Mark and thanks for the followup.
It is always nice to know if the OP even got the reply ;)

PySourceColor *is* an attempt to colorize as well as Scintilla. 
As far as I can tell there is not a default color scheme.
Maybe Idle or PythonWin.
And there are always Vim, and emacs......I am sure some one loves
those too.
I prefer the dark color scheme from PySourceColor, dark exactly
matches my editor. I bet most people feel most comfortable with
whatever they use most.
The colors develop associations.
If there is a concensus on the default color scheme I would be
intrested in knowing.
What is most liked or needed ?
Printing good colorized source is diffrent then viewing colorized
I prefer light text on dark page on a monitor (bad eyes) , but dark
text on light page to print (saves ink).
Diffrent color schemes are needed for diffrent applications.

Now I have a question.
What are you trying to do, or is this just for general knowledge?
Just curious,
