You may need to quote the '#'. Korn shell-based shells will
interpret the '#' character as the beginning of a comment and will
ignore the rest of the line. Try
xterm -fg '#ff0000'
to prevent the shell from trying to interpret it.

I'm in over my head here, but I havent seen any modifications to rgb.txt, or
any other goings on that suggest whether or how enhanced color names might
be used in emacs. list-colors-display in emacs 20.2 seems to list the same
colors, whether I use 8 bit or 16 bit display.
Can anyone clue me in? Am I making any sense?
