There's the terminal setting in your environment (echo $TERM - I get "xterm" 
when sshing in from KDE on Linux) and there's the setting of your terminal 
program (in Konsole, do "Settings | Manage Profiles"). Also the LANG and 
related environment variables may affect it; mine is en_US.UTF-8 in Linux and 
empty in DragonFly.

I believe in Yellow when I'm in Sweden and in Black when I'm in Wales.
