This is essentially my .emacs:

(set-foreground-color "white")
(set-background-color "black")

However, when the cursor is on text with the "default" face, the
cursor is invisible. Why is this?

GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i386-mingw-nt6.1.7600) of 2010-05-08 on G41R2F1


Actually, it seems that it is not only the default face, but also e.g.
the "button" face... I'd bet there are more faces which this applies
to.


This is not exactly a solution to your problem but since I see you want a colour scheme more to the likes of emacs invoked with `-no-window-system', I would suggest you try setting `inverse-video' to t. An even better solution would be to use the `color-themes' library and choose a dark theme. I use one myself. If you are interested I can share my setup.
