Also new to stackexchange.

Pls be gentle if I ask a stupid question. I'm trying to get my answers from documentation, but there is so MUCH of it!

comment Broken pgfornaments with eso-pic
That fixed it. That's so interesting! Curious: what changed in the last 6-12 months for this code to require the calc package? I definitely was not using it before, and it worked fine then. Thanks for your help!

Thanks @doncherry for the pointer. I'm a newbie with MML too, so I'm not quite sure how to use the blockquote markup. Could you show me?

comment Variable parameters in xcolor package
Thank you @Werner although I may have written my question poorly (or else I may not understand your answer). It looks like in your answer, if I wrote a document with most of the text in black and many various pieces of text all colored green, for example, and then later decided that I wanted them all blue instead, then I would need to do an editor-based global search-and-replace of your \ColorVariable{3} with \ColorVariable{1} which is like what I was doing before. I was looking for a way to make the color I assign to text a variable that I could use everywhere & change only once if des'd.

@HeikoOberdiek \colorlet was exactly what I was looking for. If you'll write this as an answer then I'll gladly accept it. Thank you.
