Currently, this is set either to black or white depending on the 
background.  For this to work correctly, you need Wing version 
2.1.0-rc1 (at least earlier 2.1 releases didn't set the caret 
color correctly).  We'll try to add a way to set the caret to 
other colors from preferences in the future.

Use Color / Syntax Highlighting preferences to alter these after
setting the source editor background color.  This may only work
properly in Wing 2.1.0-rc1.

I see some of the symbol type names in prefs are a bit cryptic.
"Word" is for keywoards like class, for, in, if, etc...

Thanks for trying Wing.
