Visual Studio .Net 2003 - Changing colors for code syntax, strings, etc.

If Needed: I mainly code in asp.net using VS.Net 2003

Is there a way to change the colors of reserved keywords and such when I'm in code view?  Right now, the only two colors I see are blue (syntax), green (comments), and black (everything else), and it would be really nice to make the code a little more distinct, or at least just change it around for fun.

You can change the colors of the syntax in many way, just go to tools/options/environment/ fonts and colors, In there you can  alter a lot of specific things, (although I don't think reserved words is one of them :-))

Ronald, you a quite a lucky man, hahaha.  I figured out the answer about 2 mins after I'd posted the question.  Mind you, that was post 30 mins of already searching.  I commend your on-the-ball effort!
