Users of vim in other Operating Systems (e.g. GNU/Linux) expect vim to show colours by example when syntax highlighting is enabled.
Out of the box, the CSW (CSWvim) package does not show colours. Can this be enabled?

The package is compiled with support for colours, but the terminal emulation of the shell must support it. The easiest way is to use 'dtterm' for your shell. Put this in your .profile (or corresponding file for the shell, e.g. .bash_profile):
TERM=dtterm export TERM
