Initialization cells in a notebook are identified visually by a little line 
attached to the cell bracket.   Sometimes this is not enough.  Often in 
large notebooks, I find myself manually formatting the Initialization cells 
to make them easier to spot (e.g. by changing their background colour to 

Is there any way to do this automatically ?   I.e., have something like the 
background colour of an Input cell change when it is marked as an 
Initialization cell.

I realise that one could always define a new cell style but I am not 
entirely sure whether the other features of initialization cells would 
continue to work.

In my opinion, it would be good to have this in some of the standard 
notebook style sheets.

Thanks for any suggestions,
