Well, actually because I couldn't get font-lock support in my color
xterm and because I erroneously thought emacs was somewhat outdated
and in the process of merging into xemacs. Little did I know about the
fact that these programs actually are different branches
altogether. And little did I know that color support only started with
emacs21 and I still had emacs 20.7.

Well, I ended up reading about emacs' and xemacs' history, upgraded to
emacs21 and voila, the colors work! Now I'm happy as happy can be
using emacs in a terminal window (I much prefer that to X anyway).

And sorry that I obviously was posting to the wrong list.

The only thing I slightly regret is that it doesn't seem to be
possible to use "emacsclient" in the same terminal as the issuing
process (like with xemacs' "gnuclient -nw" command) but rather in the
emacs server window.

Are there any workarounds?
