Yes, the idea was to change the TODAY indicator to a more distinct and obvious indicator. It was barely noticeable before. Now its very obvious, as are the previous and next months.
I’m thinking to leave the entry text itself (in previous and next months) as normal black(red) so they are readable. If we gray the background *and* the entry, it will be harder to read. The cell background gray should be indicator enough that something is different about those days.
