I don't really know what you are talking about-
but in the window settings of terminal there is a option that deals with ANSI colors, I believe.

not 100% sure on how to describe it myself. for example, i use emacs alot for coding php and html. on my mac, i use the terminal to ssh into my server and code the html there, and on a pc, i use a telnet/ssh client called putty. emacs has a syntax highlighting option that color codes the html and php coding. on the mac, all i see are highlighted blocks of code and bold letters, using the 2 colors you pick in the terminal, however, using putty on a pc, it uses many colors to define functions, quoted text, etc. as i said before, i did find somthing on mac os hints on how to set this up, but it didnt work on my machine, here is the link:
