TosWin2 supports ANSI coloring fairly good when run in TW52-mode (provided
you have a recent ncurses installed). Mutt, lynx, w3m, ntlogin, ... all
ran flawlessly here (no wonder, that's what I tested with).

If you are of the hazardous type you can also check out the latest Toswin
version from CVS and compile it from the sources.  It is almost as
vt100-compatible as the latest xterm (far better than kvt or
gnome-terminal, even better than Linux console) but suffers from quite a
few annoying bugs.  Maybe Frank can tell you whether it is currently
usable or not.  I had to stop development on it when my Milan went on
strike.  I will hopefully finish it soon, though.
