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