Host: VT Display Settings: Colors Page

Character attributes (bold, inverse, underline, and blink) change the way characters appear on the screen. These attributes, or combinations of these attributes, can be assigned to any displayed character. You can add color to your display by mapping character attributes and their combinations to colors.

Services Builder for VT also supports ISO color sequences, with which the host controls the foreground and background colors independently of other visual attributes. Default colors are provided for each attribute, attribute combination, and the ISO colors. You can change these default colors to personalize your session. Line attributes are characteristics (formats) that are applied to a line to change the way it displays on the screen.
