Capital letters are used to specify an "intense" or "bright" color (foreground only); lowercase letters indicate normal intensity colors (foreground and background). Colors are designated by the first letter of their names, with the exception of black, which is represented by x (or X).

The default white-on-black colors can be restored either by entering PT3COLOR wxPT4 or by issuing the command PT3ANSI OFFPT4 and clearing the screen. If PT3ANSI ONPT4 is then issued, the last-selected color scheme will return. The default ANSI drivers in OS/2 support 43- and 50-line as well as 25-line text modes.
