# to do it.  NOTE that the following procedure makes the OMIT context
# dependent upon the current date.  SInce it only depends on the current
# year, which is not likely to change while producing a calendar, we
# are fairly safe.  However, reminders with huge DELTA or BACK components
# may not operate as expected.  In general, any time you make OMIT
# dependent upon the current date, it's tricky and results may not be
# what you expect.  You should try to make sure that the OMIT context
# "near" any current reminders will not change during a calendar run.
# The SCANFROM clause should help make these OMITs very safe.

# Examples
REM MSG A [Blu]blue[Nrm] reminder.
REM MSG [Red]%"A red reminder%" safe to use in the calendar mode.[Nrm]

# Here is an example of how to use msgprefix() and msgsuffix().  These
# will highlight priority-0 reminders in bright red,
# priority-2500 in red, and priority-7500 in blue.  All others
# will be in the normal colors
FSET msgprefix(x) iif(x==0, BrRed, x==2500, Red, x==7500, Blu, Nrm)

# Don't forget to return to normal color set at the end of reminder!
FSET msgsuffix(x) Nrm

# The next examples are great for putting right at the end of the reminder
# file.  They make queued reminders more eye-catching when they pop up.
