Hello List,

For visual reasons I'd like to have TODO keywords in brackets, like
[TODO], [DONE] etc. Unfortunately, orgmode does not allow me to do
that. I can define them, I can select them with C-c C-t, but in the
actual .org file they are not recognized as TODO keywords. Or, at
least, they don't get drawn using the org-todo face.

Ciao, Marcus

I'm not in favor of allowing square brackets for TODO keywords, I find
the limitations for the TODO keywords really acceptable.

So unless many people are asking for this, I will not implement it.

not sure about the brackets, but to add some visual distinctiveness, I
use this:

(setq org-todo-keyword-faces 
 '(("PROJ" :background "blue" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("TODO" :background "red1" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("NEXT" :background "red1" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("STRT" :background "orange" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("WAIT" :background "yellow" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("APPT" :background "red1" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("DONE" :background "forest green" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ("CNCL" :background "lime green" :weight bold :box (:line-width 2 :style released-button))
   ))

Great on X, less so on tty.
Give it a try ;).

You can have approaching effects using boxes to surround the TODO keywords.
For example:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(org-todo ((t (:weight bold :box (:line-width 1 :color "red3") :foreground "white" :background "#FF5555"))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

in my color theme Leuven (see
http://orgmode.org/worg/color-themes/color-theme-leuven.el).

Best regards,
  Seb

I experimented a lot with background colors and boxes (although the
pseudo-3D is so 90s) and came to the conclusion, that a combination
of brackets and a colorful background looks best.

But it's only a cosmetic issue, if allowing square brackets is too
much work, so be it.

Ciao, Marcus
