The default (established by slang in its SLtt_get_terminfo magic) should
depend on the TERM variable (or lynx's -term=... option) and the associated
description.  If VMS-Slang behaves enough like Unix-Slang, that is.

It shouldn't - SLtt_Use_Ansi_Colors is the name of a C variable in the
source (cslang.txt is the "S-Lang Library C Programmer's Guide").

You should also find COLORTERM mentioned in the lynx help file (mentioned
also under -color).
