Well there is a standard called ECMA-48 that describes various terminal
escape sequences that terminals might use.  But no one terminal
has implemented ECMA-48 completely or correctly, because the standard
is is too generic to be used directly.

But each terminal uses escape sequences that are usually an approximate
subset of ECMA-48, plus their own custom additions.
