First Aid Color coordination for first aid

This is my first post. Let me start by saying that I realize everything in the FA is important + golijan said "use a paint brush and pain the whole page" etc.

That being said, what color coordination do you guys use to highlight/write in the FA? I have seen people with highlighter and colored pens going to town on their FA. Others I have spoken to say that color coordinating helps them to decipher the information on a page just by visually scanning the page for that certain color on the page.

Any ideas??

to write always use a pencil .... at first you will be overwhelmed to what to include and what not to ... and then you will eventually gain sense on how to annotate and also a lot on annotation will get neat and you will organize a bit more better as time pass ...so you will erase and re-write ..... so use only pencil for annotations ..... use only a different color pencil for UW
