All text mode are acutally graphic modes where pixels are calculated at
runtime by hardware. It include reading ROM/RAM charsets that indicate
foreground/backround color. The actuall index of the color is defined by
additional (char) byte, and the color is index in palette.

If you need more background information I recomend you SVGATextMode
documentation. This project brings custom modelines in text mode,
including custom modes.

So You can change the color of character, and in some chipsets it may
have same meaning.
Anyway, I never managed to make cvidix work for me, no mater that I
have same video card as in Gabucino's successful report. Well, I haven't tried
very hard...
