Hi Mark,

Thanks for your suggestions, but I am afraid I cannot do anything about
that. First, the monitor and the keyboard a lighted slightly
differently, considering the are positioned differently (vertical vs.
horizontal) so there are bound to be some differences in
lightness/contrast. Also the keyboard is not necessarily from the same
material as the monitor and as a result it might have different light
reflection/diffraction/scattering properties. 

And finally, I've tried darker keyboards and I didn't like them, I also
tried lighter displays and didn't liked them as well. Show me way out of
this dilema and I'd be happy :-)
