is this the latest?

       If graphics support was enabled at compile-time, rxvt  can
       be  queried  with  ANSI  escape  sequences and can address
       individual pixels instead of text  characters.   Note  the
       graphics support is still considered beta code.

       In  addition  to  the  default  foreground  and background
       colours, rxvt can display up to 16 colours (8 ANSI colours
       plus  high-intensity  bold/blink  versions  of  the same).
       Here is a list of the colours with their rgb.txt names.

       It is also possible to specify the colour values of  fore-
       ground,  background,  cursorColor,  cursorColor2, colorBD,
       colorUL as a number 0-15, as  a  convenient  shorthand  to
       reference the colour name of color0-color15.

       Note  that  -rv  ("reverseVideo:  True") simulates reverse
       video  by  always   swapping   the   foreground/background
       colours.   This  is  in  contrast  to  xterm(1)  where the
       colours are only swapped if they have not  otherwise  been
       specified.  For example,

       rxvt -fg Black -bg White -rv
              would  yield  White  on Black, while on xterm(1) it
              would yield Black on White.
