I'm using gnu emacs as
emacs -nw in a terminal window. Colored text is usually almost completely illegible for me. As recommended in this answer, I have done the following in an attempt to get rid of all coloring:
(dolist (face (face-list)) (set-face-attribute face nil :foreground nil :background nil))
However, I still get colored text when I do operations like searching. For example, if I do control-S, I get a dark blue prompt that says "I-search," and if the search is failing, then the trailing part of the search string is highlighted in pink.
Also, if I start up emacs without giving a filename, there is a help screen with hyperlinks, which are colored.
Is there some way to get rid of these other types of coloring as well?
