Stylesheet questions

1)  As of version 8 (maybe earlier), comments using the  (*---*) 
notation in Input cells seem to be displayed in a light gray color, at 
least in the Default notebook style and maybe others.

What's the recipe for converting these comments to some other color (and 
maybe also some other font), either in a customized stylesheet or even 
in all stylesheets globally?

[The more step-by-step this recipe is, the better for me!]

2)  At a more general level, I'm happy to have the syntax color-coding 
that's used in recent versions of Mathematica, provided the colors are 
"bright" enough or have high enough contrast.  My age-deteriorating 
vision does not do well, however, with text presented at reduced levels 
of contrast or in "washed out" colors.  

Any global stylesheet setting(s) that will address this issue globally?

3)  Stylesheets are one of the more arcane areas of Mathematica coding.  
I have Heikki Ruskeepaa's Navigator and some other manuals; but is there 
some really good all-in-one vade mecum for stylesheet editing to be 
found anywhere in the Mathematica documentation?

Thanks for any advice.
