        ^^^^^^^

This is neither possible or desirable. A black background needs
a light foreground color, and vice versa. Yellow work against
black background, but there is no yellowish color that works 
against white. Cyan and magenta work a _tiny_ bit better, you 
can read the text, but they still don't make good foregrounds
on white.
