hl-line-mode and I really like the built-in
misterioso theme. However, the way that lines are highlighted with this theme cancels out syntax highlighting or any other properties of the highlighted lines, as can be seen in this screenshot.
How can I keep the highlighting the same color, but avoid covering up the face properties of the highlighted text? I would be willing to compromise and change the color if necessary, but that doesn't seem to be the issue. I have tried changing the color, but still get the same effect. I have also tried this solution, but only succeeded in getting rid of highlighting altogether.
This question seems to be the same or similar to mine, but I am honestly not sure if it is the same. I tried the solution suggested there but couldn't get it to work. Rather than having a discussion in the comments of that question, I thought I would ask a new one, but my feelings will not be hurt if this gets marked as duplicate.
