 Customizing Faces
 .................
 
    In addition to user options, some customization groups also include
 faces.  When you show the contents of a group, both the user options and
 the faces in the group appear in the customization buffer.  Here is an
 example of how a face looks:
 
      Custom Changed Face: (sample) [Hide]
         [State]: this face is unchanged from its standard setting.
      Parent groups: [Custom Magic Faces]
      Attributes: [ ] Font family: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Width: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Height: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Weight: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Slant: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Underline: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Overline: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Strike-through: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Box around text: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Inverse-video: [Value Menu] *
                  [X] Foreground: [Value Menu] Color: white       (sample)
                  [X] Background: [Value Menu] Color: blue        (sample)
                  [ ] Stipple: [Value Menu] *
                  [ ] Inherit:
 
    Each face attribute has its own line.  The `[X]' field before the
 attribute name indicates whether the attribute is "enabled"; `X' means
 that it is.  You can enable or disable the attribute by invoking that
 field.  When the attribute is enabled, you can change the attribute
 value in the usual ways.
 
    On a black-and-white display, the colors you can use for the
 background are `black', `white', `gray', `gray1', and `gray3'.  Emacs
 supports these shades of gray by using background stipple patterns
 instead of a color.
 
    Setting, saving and resetting a face work like the same operations
 for options ( Changing an Option).
 
    A face can specify different appearances for different types of
 display.  For example, a face can make text red on a color display, but
 use a bold font on a monochrome display.  To specify multiple
 appearances for a face, select `Show all display specs' in the menu you
 get from invoking `[State]'.
 
    Another more basic way to set the attributes of a specific face is
 with `M-x modify-face'.  This command reads the name of a face, then
 reads the attributes one by one.  For the color and stipple attributes,
 the attribute's current value is the default--type just <RET> if you
 don't want to change that attribute.  Type `none' if you want to clear
 out the attribute.
