An administrator can use the following preferences to configure
default colors for clock in normal state and alert state.
The preferences are used when starting wxdkclock for the first time.
/color/clock/... values are used in normal state, the
/color/alert/... values are used in alert state when showing a
blinking clock. The values are in the range 0 .... 255.
For /colour/clock/... you should use a colour specified in CI documents (corporate identity) as main colour. Derive the /colour/alert value by transforming the /colour/clock/... colour to hue/saturation/brightness and increase brightness. Make sure the brightness difference is recognized as blinking but is not annoying.
