My Color Theme for Notepad++

I really like the color theme from the Adobe Source Code Pro font announcement for HTML and XML as well as the beautiful Source Code Pro font for coding.  Then, I read this Programming Fonts comparison and really like the color theme for C# in the screenshots.

My favorite text editor is Notepad++ on Windows when I don't feel like opening the slow and bloated Visual Studio.  I really wanted a good dark color theme based on the Source Code Pro announcement and Programming Fonts comparison for coding HTML/XML, C#, and Python.  I will eventually optimize the colors for JavaScript and CSS very soon.

It is similar to many many other themes out there.  A friend of mine even mentioned it looks like a typical VIM highlighting theme.  I am going to call it Obsidian PyCs since it is based on the Obsidian theme that comes with Notepad++.
