$ man rxvt
Window background colour; resource background.
Window foreground colour; resource foreground.
The cursor colour; resource cursorColor.
The mouse pointer colour; resource pointerColor.
The colour of the border between the xterm scroll-
bar and the text; resource borderColor.
Use the specified colour for the colour value n,
where 0-7 corresponds to low-intensity (normal)
colours and 8-15 corresponds to high-intensity
(bold = bright foreground, blink = bright back-
ground) colours. The canonical names are as fol-
lows: 0=black, 1=red, 2=green, 3=yellow, 4=blue,
5=magenta, 6=cyan, 7=white, but the actual colour
names used are listed in the COLORS AND GRAPHICS
Well the listing in 'COLORS AND GRAPHICS' as mentioned above is
missing in the manpage unfortunately, nut you may find them in
