that only switches the bold/underline attributes around a bit for me.

With the apple supplied emacs (and the fink build too), i got
real ansi colors in tty-emacs.

This whole termcap/terminfo setup seems to fail misreably with
the 21.3 build from my previous post.

They display them just fine! I just can't enter them :-(

I've set up for ISO Latin 1 and viewing a file
with iso encoded umlauts shows them correctly in tty emacs (all the
builds i mentioned). Entering them from my (german) keyboard 
however results in stripped high-bits in the fink and apple versions.
The 21.3 build handlet that correctly - but colorless..
