not exactly - Lynx's implemented to supply video attributes
bold/underline/reverse (8 combinations), which are mapped in parallel to
8 colors.  It would make more sense to revisit this and separate the video
attributes from colors.

why should "brightblue" be the same as bold + blue?  it's true only if you
make some nonportable (and constrictive) assumptions about the choice of
terminal emulator.
