These escape sequences do not need to be embedded into your programs;
they can be derived in a terminal-independent manner. See "man 5 terminfo"
for gory details.

Here's an example that will display "world" in standout - but only on
suitably capable terminals:

    echo "Hello" $(tput smso)"world"$(tput rmso) "as you can see."
