That's one of the reasons I like the xrdb route - it's instant with no need
to restart X. I got very tired of doing that trying to work out which colours
were which. Unfortunately, once I'd tracked done the ones I wanted, I threw
away the bit of paper with them all written down :-( You could certainly try
doing an xrdb of a seperate file initially, to get the colours as you want
them, then implement them more permanently in .Xresources. From my settings,
color0 matches to black (background) and 4&12 are blue (Fkey text on standard
IBM screens) which are just cyan on an untweaked tn5250 install.
