i think it's best to use 'do we have at least 256-color support' instead. how 
do you want to determine what the background rgb values are? the name of the 
color doesn't mean anything, people use themes for terminals. when theme is 
reasonable, it may work, more or less (probably less), but if colors are 
totally different than their names suggest, it's all bound to be wrong. the 
only solution to that is using 256 colors and not giving a damn about the 
current theme at all, at least when the html rendering is supposed to stay as 
close to the original as possible.
