  1. IBM CGA colors, used in MediaWiki:Common.css (r61170)
  2. File:Nethackwiki-logo.svg, tweaked by hand to look nice in site logo.
  3. All dark colors have 50% lightness, all light colors have 75% lightness (assuming gamma=2.2; black is 25%, white 100%).
  4. Lightness is proportional to sum of bits in color code plus one (assuming gamma=2.2; brown counts as 1.5 bits).
  5. Same as above, except magenta is darkened by half a bit.
  6. GNOME Terminal Tango color scheme.
