For vile in the terminal, colours are set with escape codes.
Historically most terminals supported a limited number (if any) of
colors, typically 8 or 16.  Terminal emulators such as xterm allow
Xresources to be used to set the values of these colours (see the
color0-color15 resources in the xterm manual page).

In vile, the command "show-colors" will show what those 16 colours
look like.  See also:
