But that's the most white color that your terminal can produce.
xterm.el doesn't _tell_ the terminal what color to produce for
"white", it only _documents_ (sort of) what that color is, in terms of
RGB components.

I don't think you can, not for the background.  But I'm not an expert
on xterm.

I don't see how you can, but let us know if you find a way.

I'm closing this bug.  Feel free to reopen if you find a way of making
your white "whiter".
