Colouring the Timeline's main view

The main background colour is $MapBackgroundColor, whilst alternate even-numbered timeline bands - where present - will use tints of $TimelineColor. Vertical grid lines indicating major time periods (varies by scale in use) are shown in $TimelineGridColor. If used, timeline band labels are coloured automatically using tints of $TimelineColor for all odd-numbered bands. The even numbered bands (including band zero) use $MapBackgroundColor.
