Man can be made to display colors instead of the bold and underline
attributes, for example on a RH9 box with the following,
the bold characters are blue, and the underlined stuff is green in
man. And in vi the -- INSERT -- text that indicates that we are in
insert mode, is blue (because it carries a bold attribute). Since I
upgraded to FC3, the colors disappeared from man.
And I also don't quite understand your solution with "Ctrl+F2" (maybe
you have Gnome or KDE in mind? I run neither, only sawfish), but I
wouldn't want to view html pages, the man format is great, the only
thing is that I would prefer to have colors. And also I would prefer
to see the -- INSERT -- text of vi in blue, not bold, but this is a
secondary issue, I'm sure once I manage to get man colorized, it will
turn blue immediately :)
Anyone? Colors in man with FC3?
