White on White

Hi All,

I am using XFce (xfce- as
my GUI. I like to use the following options in my xterms:

xfterm4 -gb blue -bg white

Sometime I also use "darkgreen", "darkred" and "black" for my
foreground -- it helps me tell windows apart.

Problem: manual pages (man xxx) like to show some
of the highlighted lettering in white. "minicom" does the
same thing on me. :'(

As white on white is invisible (-gb white -bg white),
does anyone know of a way to keep "man", "minicom" and
everyone else from displaying white letters when I have
a white background?

Many thanks,

I Fish. Therefore, I am.

Check the man page for xfterm4, or the preferences menu if it has one,
to see if you can change the colors for bold or underlined text.
