ŪŻTECH NotesŽŪ



  ž Notice that the color codes correspond to Video Attributes.



  ž At system startup, the video system is still in its default setting in

    which character-blink is active rather than background-bold (see

    INT 10H 1003H).  Thus, if you use 8-15 as bkgnd, you will actually see

    a background with the corresponding 0-7 color and the foreground

    characters will blink.



  ž Screen colors are reset when ANSI.SYS device driver is loaded.  You may

    want to rearrange the order of your DEVICE= lines to minimize the

    visual impact.  Or use something like...



      @Echo <[nnm   (nn is an ANSI color code. See ANSI Escape Sequences)



    ...in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
