  I take the following, taken from the emacs faq ( 
http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs-faq.text ), as a bad omen :

34:  How can I highlight a region of text in Emacs?

  If you are using a windowing system such as X, you can cause the region
  to be highlighted when the mark is active by including

        (transient-mark-mode t)


  Nothing is said about non-X. Also, in the emacs-lisp manual,

X11 Colors

You can specify colors when you use Emacs version 19 with the MIT X Windowing system. (All the previous examples should work with both Emacs version 18 and
Emacs version 19; this works only with Emacs version 19.) 

  Again, nothing is said about non-X. So don't stake your life 
on colors on the console ...
