@section Text Terminal Colors
@cindex colors on text-only terminals
Emacs can display color on text-only terminals, starting with version
21. These terminals usually support only a small number of colors, and
the computer uses small integers to select colors on the terminal. This
means that the computer cannot reliably tell what the selected color
looks like; instead, you have to inform your application which small
integers correspond to which colors. However, Emacs does know the
standard set of colors and will try to use them automatically.

The functions described in this section control how terminal colors
are used by Emacs.
