This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386--freebsd, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-11-09 on pyrl.eye
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr/local i386--freebsd'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


Wow, what a tremendous improvement in the text-mode coloring!  I am
seriously impressed.  Gnus is especially pretty!

I do have one suggestion, however, which might improve it just a bit
more:

The system setup file /etc/rc.conf as the following color redefinitions:
allscreens_flags="-m on VGA_80x50 brown black"

This is basically an "amber" foreground which is easy on the eyes.

When emacs starts up the foreground colors are apparently white and an
extrabright white, hard on the eyes.

SOMETIMES after a screen redraw my default colors show through.
Eventually enough keyboard actions are used and the colors go back to
harsh white on black.

Thanks again for this terrific work!

:-)    <<===  that's me being HAPPY.  :-)
