Re: Emacs colours [RE: GNU emacs 21.2-5 packages available]

I can see why this is necessary for emacs running in a "DOS box", but is
ugly and should not be necessary when displayed in a rxvt or xterm window,
or when using the X11 interface. I know I can change this back (I haven't
found out how, but I'm sure a little investigation will find it: emacs -r
isn't enough), but it would be cleanest to keep similar defaults as all
other versions (not least because I have a common .emacs).
Could I suggest that the reverse colours only be the default for the non-X11
interface, when run in a DOS box ($TERM=cygwin, I think)?
You can change site-init.el if you don't like the current scheme. It's a hack
until I figure out what emacs is doing wrong, so it will revert to proper
colors once I track it down.
One other minor point, is that I've noticed that describe-function doesn't
always work, where it does in NT and RH7.2 Emacs 21.2, eg.
This looks like an emacs install bug -- the DOC file is made but not installed.
I'll look at it.
