I disagree with the resolution of this bug. It is still unresolved.

But that's the most white color that your terminal can produce.
xterm.el doesn't _tell_ the terminal what color to produce for
"white", it only _documents_ (sort of) what that color is, in terms of
RGB components.

I don't think you can, not for the background.  But I'm not an expert
on xterm.

I don't see how you can, but let us know if you find a way.

I'm closing this bug.  Feel free to reopen if you find a way of making
your white "whiter".

Subject: 23.1; white background is color #e5e5e5 in terminal window
I am running emacs in an Apple Terminal window while ssh'd to a Linux Ubuntu 10.04.1 system. My TERM is set to xterm-color. (Note that the Apple Terminal app only supports 8 colors.) All the colors are quite dingy looking, but in particular the background is color #e5e5e5 which on my computer is fairly dark and makes the text hard to read (particularly cyan or green text).

Here's what list-colors-display shows:

black                  black                                                                 #000000
red                    red                                                                   #cd0000
green                  green                                                                 #00cd00
yellow                 yellow                                                                #cdcd00
blue                   blue                                                                  #0000ee
magenta                magenta                                                               #cd00cd
cyan                   cyan                                                                  #00cdcd
white                  white                                                                 #e5e5e5

Note that others on the emacs mailing list have been able to reproduce this problem (even on a Windows system). See the thread "white is #e5e5e5" started Jan 23, 2011.
