Hi Ralf,

thanks for writing your concerns, but please accept my apologies when I say that
I could not find the "wishlist" from this.

I understand that you're not happy with an app on some color palette in a
terminal window. Then you're talking about accessibility features. While I do
see a vague link between the two, I cannot understand the wish. What would you
like us to do? Terminal color palette is user-selectable, and is white-on-black
by default. Some console apps might look a little weird on it, but I'm not sure
it's up to the flavor to take care of every individual application in every
possible configuration, even when limited to terminal apps only.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but to me this seems like some
enhancement request to w3m upstream authors, rather than distribution
integrators. However, I'm listening if you have some further arguments on how we
could, and should, improve the situation.
