Hi guys, To those pushing for a certain color -- could you please
suggest that ONE color on this list before tomorrow? As iterated
above, it shouldn't be gray or in the LibO color palette for best
possible contrast.

There is no 'above' in your post ;)

Full context of forum threads as always are available from our Nabble
archive, so for this thread "   
Light Blue for Non-printing characters

Plus, as I explained before:
"  - most of the time people work with dark on light, or light on dark
 - fine tuning for special cases needs a per document or per paragraph
 - that is impossible/impractical with the appearance setting
 - so the easiest solution is say 60 or 50% grey
 - full automatic solution needs much more work, but is only relevant in
relatively (very) few situations "

, so I don't get you 'no gray' ;)

Actually, in resolving  fdo#68071
<>  , Mirek's proposed,
and     Toma┼ż implemented the RGB color #6abed3  (106:190:211) lifted from
iWorks on OSX.   At this point in the 4.3 release cycle, the color selected
could still be changed.  And Mirek has asked for that alternative. 

IMHO, the #6abed3 remains a viable choice (on both light or dark
backgrounds), and so should not be "adjusted" until a more ambitious--auto
selection--or expert configuration is implemented.   But a move back to a
mid-density gray would leave UI little better than the old default (of
matching text color).

As can be seen in:
the NON_PRINTING_CHARACTER_COLOR is now defined just once in
/sw/source/core/inc/txtfrm.hxx;  with one additional entry in inftxt.cxx for
DrawTab. So a simple hack for anyone wishing to change the color of NPC and
role their own.
