$ emacs -q -nw -eval "(setq frame-background-mode 'dark)" .bashrc
[then turn on font-lock-mode] doesn't help... does anybody else find
difficulty reading dark blue on black?

By the way please fix Help:
|Set this to the symbol `dark' if your background color is dark, `light' if
|your background is light, or nil (default) if you want Emacs to
|examine the brightness for you.  Don't set this variable with `setq';
|this won't have the expected effect.

well, if one shouldn't set it with setq, then the Help should tell the
user just how and where to set it.

You are probably right... Uh oh, sounds technical.  Maybe emacs should
provide a "welcome to emacs initialization hand-holding adjuster
script. are all the words on below readable? []yes []no...., if no,
please view this standard jpg to see if you system needs adjusting or
emacs needs adjusting"... "proceeding to adjust emacs -nw colors
... how's that yellow? ok, hold on, launching M-x doctor

Hmm, I know, make a screen shot of what all the colors should look
like for emacs -nw on normal and reverse video situations, and we will
click on it and see if yellow on white and midnight blue on black are
OK perhaps...
