My version is 21.4.1 on Debian Etch. I searched for backports but
Emacs 22 isn't available there for Debian it seems. But can you throw
some light on how to check if my termcap supports 256 colors or not
and how to make it support it?

Bright white looks good for normal text, atleast to me.

BTW, what is the best feature of Emacs 22 that isn't there in Emacs
21?
