      Description

      Add an indication into the 'summary TODO' message area indicating if a character is in medium or heavy encumberance (along the lines of: "You may want to review your carried equipment as you are [moderately|severely] encumbered").

      Also, highlight the words Medium and Heavy on the equipment tab (amber & red respectively) to make it more obvious when a character is encumbered.

      Several people have queried on the forum why they have reduced skill values etc, without noticing that it's due to encumberance, so making this more evident should hopefully be helpful.

        As a 'quick fix' perhaps just make the Medium/Heavy appear in bold to ensure they stand out? Colour coding is a better long term option though.

        I created a patch implementing the suggested "quick fix". Medium load is bold and colored amber. Heavy load is bold-italic and magenta. Overload is bold-italic and red.
