I'm using Emacs 26.1 in the terminal (emacs -nw).

When using css-mode, strings representing colors seem to be automatically highlighted. I don't find this feature useful, and further, the colors chosen often make the text illegible.

Is there a way to disable this while keeping CSS syntax highlighting and formatting?

  • Just try M-x font-lock-mode to toggle font-lock off. If you like the effect to be permanent you can add (add-hook 'css-mode-hook (lambda () (font-lock-mode -1))) to your init file. Not yet posted as an answer since I did not test it.

  • @Tobias, thanks, though that appears to disable the syntax highlighting as well. Jul 2 '19 at 12:45
  • Now I know what you mean! You can switch off css-fontify-colors in M-x customize-option css-fontify-colors.

You can switch off css-fontify-colors in the customization buffer that opens on M-x customize-option RET css-fontify-colors RET.
