DESCRIPTION

So to set your terminal to ansi type 'color ansi' then to make room names
appear in bold type 'color room_name bold'. To have a status bar type 'option
status'. Note though for any of the colors to work you need to have your
term_type set to something other than dumb. The possible formats for the
various groups are listed by typing just 'color'. The colors such as
red/green/yellow only work in ansi mode as vt100 does not support these colors.
