    11=== How to split the screen to see index and pager/ body/ content at once? ===
    2 To enable the mini-index set <tt>$pager_index_lines</tt> as you
     2To enable the mini-index set '''$pager_index_lines''' as you
    33need it.

    99=== Why is "default" not recognized when mutt with ncurses [5.2] starts up? ===
    10 For ncurses, it's implemented by the <tt>use_default_colors()</tt> function.
     10For ncurses, it's implemented by the '''use_default_colors()''' function.
    1111If the configure script doesn't find that, it won't compile-in the support for 'default' into mutt. (T.E.Dickey)

    1313=== Using a "default" background does not work. ===
    14 If your Mutt is linked against slang (check with "<tt>mutt -v | grep using</tt>"), try to link against ncurses, which generally works better.
     14If your Mutt is linked against slang (check with "'''mutt -v | grep using'''"), try to link against ncurses, which generally works better.
    1515You can make it work with slang, too, by setting the following environment variable: export COLORFGBG="default;default"
    1616(Gentoo users tend to have this problem.)
     
    1818=== Why doesn't the background highlight colour show behind white space? ===
    1919This seems to be caused by an interaction between the slang library and the "reverse" video attribute that Mutt uses
    20 by default for certain <tt>mono/color</tt> objects, when Mutt is running on a terminal that supports color.  (Mutt starts out configured to the "reverse" setting for these objects on all terminals, but will not allow the user to run a "mono" command to explicitly configure that setting [on any <tt>mono/color</tt> object] after startup if the session is running on a color terminal.)

    2222Some possible ways to get the background highlight color to apply to white space as expected:
    2323* build against ncurses instead of slang.<br>&nbsp;<br>
    24 * define TERM to be a mono-only terminal when running Mutt, e.g.<br><tt>&nbsp;    TERM=vt100 mutt</tt><br>(making sure that neither TERMCAP nor COLORTERM are defined).<br>&nbsp;<br>
    25 * use <tt>color</tt> commands in the Mutt initialization file to replace the "reverse" attribute with color attributes for each of the affected objects.<br>&nbsp;<br>For example, the following would fairly closely mimic the default value of "reverse" on a standard black-on-white xterm<pre>   color status    white black

    2626   color indicator white black

    4646Yes. Please consult the "Using Colors" & "Patterns" sections of "manual.txt". Example:
    4747 color index cyan default '~f her@herplace.com'
