Default How to change highlight colour of Today

I have just upgraded to Office 2003 and in my Outlook Calendar Month view,
the 'Go to today' highlight is a wishy washy silver which is difficult to
pick out.from my white background. Is there a way to change the colour to
something a bit bolder.

I can't find anything in the options menu or on the web.

No.

You can add an icon to the button name - view, toolbar, customize... right
click on the button and either choose image or edit image.

Thanks Diane but I'm afraid I didn't make myself clear.

I meant the bar at the top of the selected cell, today, in the calendar
grid. Meanwhile, I have discovered that it is a function of the 'Theme'
setting in the Win XP display properties. I can make it a mucky orange brown
but I don't like the rest of the changes to my desk top so I will just have
to live with it the way it is.

Thanks anyway.

I found a good way of highlighting today's appointments in weekly and monthly view using conditional formatting:

. go to Edit - Automatic Formatting
. click Add
. in the Name field enter "Today"
. in the Label field choose a color
. click on Condition...
. on Appointments and Meetings tab where it says Time:
. choose "starts"
. choose "today"
. click OK
. click OK
