The referenced description says these aren't necessary for Ncurses 5,
which is what I have.

Indeed, tput and "worm" (demonstration program that comes with Ncurses)
work fine.  Even Lynx is able to display two colors with this eterm
definition that it doesn't with the older no-color one: yellow
foreground and blue background.

Is there a way to trace what characters or ncurses capability strings
are being sent to the screen?  I suspect Lynx is getting the colors
it's asking for, but just asking for the wrong ones.
