Distraction free writing with Google Docs, Firefox, and Stylish

If you're looking for an online, minimalistic, word processor, here's what you'll need:
Google Docs
Stylish Add-on :  Stylish :: Add-ons for Firefox

Once installed, you can select a style to use when you're editing a Google doc.  Several dark-room type scripts are available for the minimalistic writer.  Once you've chosen your style, hit F11 for full screen.  I prefer the full black screen with green text:

Here's what i use:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("docs.google.com") {

    display: none !important;

.editor {
    margin: 30px auto !important;
    width: 100% !important;
    max-width: 800px !important;
    background-color: #000 !important;
    color: #00DD00 !important;
    font-size: 100% !important;
    line-height: 100% !important;

The code is simple enough for most people to understand.  Some people prefer a tighter column, different color text, etc.
