Zenburn for gedit

Zenburn is a low contrast theme suitable for coding. How to get that theme for gedit, Ubuntu's default text editor?

Get the XML theme file here:

download it, and import to gedit via edit/preferences/font & colours/+

Note: if you can't see anything when you highlight a word, add these two lines to the downloaded zenburn.xml file:

<style name="selection" background="#ef7950"/>
<style name="selection-unfocused" background="#ef7950"/> 

 and import it to gedit again

#ef7950 is a softer brother of the #dd4814, which is Ubuntu's trademark orange
