Thanks a lot!

It turns out that for Emacs 21.4 on RHEL5 there is no xterm-256color.el at all. As instructed by the link you sent me, I downloaded the xterm-256color.el from


and copied it into /usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/term/, then

     TERM=xterm-256color emacs -nw -q -f list-colors-display

shows much more colors, so does it under org-mode.

Thank you very much, Suresh!

magenta               magenta
cyan                  cyan
white                 white

Looks like your TERM is not exported properly.

This works for me.
| TERM=xterm-256color emacs -nw -q -f list-colors-display

See here more details

Uner X-mode, shows all rgb.txt colors.
