Description

Hi guys,

I've created a new style for Colloquy based on the Blackboard style in Textmate. It's built off the Bland style available in the application itself.

Some things I noticed:

The file in the zip archive is currently labelled Blackboard.colloquyStle instead of Blackboard.colloquyStyle
Colloquy doesn't read this as the extension of the style has a misstype. It's important to have the packaging right.

info.plist

name alignment issue with style name. Is the Style called Saltmind or Blackboard?
<key>CFBundleName</key>

<string>Saltmind</string>

The NSHumanReadableCopyright String should follow the standard Apple conventions.
I see other styles don't do this correctly either. Peter P or Josh Gibbs?

<key>NSHumanReadableCopyright</key>
<string>Josh Gibbs</string>

<key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key>
<string>Bland Colloquy Chat Style</string>

This should perhaps be more descriptive.

I was kind of expecting to see comic sans as the typeface for this one :D
Glad you didn't though and used Monaco instead. This looks more like a traditional IRC terminal style in Monospace with a dash of colour. I like the look :)
