Thanks for the screenshot. I'll check into it tonight when I have
access to a real terminal on my Linux system at home. Do you mind
telling me what colorscheme and terminal you're using? Also, what type
of region is being applied to the text with the grey background (e.g.,
"TDVIM USER MANUAL")? (I'm guessing it's bold-italic, and you're using
a color terminal that doesn't really support italic, but displays it
as reverse video instead...)

Well, you could parse the output of...
