Oh.. i was about to push the patch...until I realized the original thread.

Check those pictures:

I executed the scripts in to check for 256
colors and
normal ansi escape codes. And here's the result:
(left one is xterm, and right one is st)

As you may see.. not all ansi scape codes are supported, and I would prefer
to have a patch implementing support for those missing escape codes.

Then I run irssi:

You may see some other differences... and the missuse of bright when bold
sometimes hurts my eyes... but some programs just are hard to read without

Another annoying thing I found in st is that text selection does not
reflects it
correctly until you release the mouse button, this is a bit annoying
because you
dont see what's going to be copied into the clipboard until it's too late.

So, before adding this patch I would prefer some more discussion to make st
more usable. and less eye-harmful.
