hi Tim,

| `emacs -nw` is subject to the TERM settings of the terminal it's running
| in. Depending on your distro that may be an 8 or 256 color variant. I'm
| suspicious based on your descriptions that your TERM setting may have
| changed recently.

ok yes ......... but it wasn't that recent ... i've only just got round
to trying to fix it 

| The 256 color default them of emacs is much more subtle
| than the 8 color theme.

i'm sure ... but with imperfect eyesight 'crude and brutal' works
much better than 'subtle' for me :-)

| You can see what your TERM setting is by `echo $TERM` and you can see how
| many colors emacs thinks it can display by `M-x list-colors-display`.

echo $TERM ... straightforwardly gives  'xterm'

list-colors-display gives:

black                                            #000000
red                                              #cd0000
green                                            #00cd00
yellow                                           #cdcd00
blue                                             #0000ee
magenta                                          #cd00cd
cyan                                             #00cdcd
white                                            #e5e5e5

in effect, if i could change the 'cd's to 'ff's in the above (as picked
up by the keyword bindings for latex), i'd most likely be quite happy .....
is there a way of achieving that in emacs itself? ... other TERMs are
fine with the colours as is

| FWIW, some terminals allow you to change the TERM setting to something else
| if you'd prefer the 8 color variant.
