10.5: Use a plug-in to customize Terminal's ANSI colors Apps
Customize your ANSI colors in Leopard Terminal with this new TerminalColours plug-in (updated by CiarĂ¡n Walsh). It was designed as a replacement for the Tiger TerminalColors plugin, which doesn't work in 10.5. This one works in Leopard Terminal, and will let you swap out those unreadable dark blue and red colors for those of your choice.

[robg adds: I haven't tested this one, but I know that customizing the ANSI colors was a popular topic in the pre-10.5 days, so thought some of you might find this useful.]

Is there any way to get Terminal to support 256 colours?

Is there a way to programatically change window transparency in Terminal?

I'm interested in this too, specifically via AppleScript.

yeah. command+,
change whatever you want and there's a button somewhere that says something to the effect of "set as defaults."

I meant through AppleScript.
Back before Leopard, the window color was an array of 4 components: red, green, blue, opacity. Now only the RGB is there, and it seems the opacity (or transparency, whatever you want to call it) is no longer available at AppleScript level. I wonder if it's a bug?
