Hi,
To make your class name (as well as other data types) appear in a HIGHLIGHTED colour say DARK BLUE and BOLD, do the following

1. Go to the directory where the Visual Studio executable is stored (the default for express 2005 is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE")
2. Create a text file and save it as "usertype.dat" (it has to be this name or it won't work!)
3. In "usertype.dat" , type in the types you want highlighted - for example I typed in my class names -CVector3,Grid,Camera,Sphere,Box......
4. Save the file then load Visual Studio

These words will now be HIGHLIGHTED!!!!

Now, you can change the highlight as follows -
1. Tools -> Options
2. Under Environment->Fonts and Colors
3. in "Display items" select User Keywords
4. Set your preferences!:D
