To minimize color-flashing, use color names or hexadecimal color values that you know have been specified for other applications. The default color values have been chosen with memory limitations for color in mind.

# cp label_encodings label_encodings.orig
# pfedit label_encodings
COLOR NAMES: label= Admin_Low; color= #bdbdbd; ... label= Admin_High; color= #636363;
label= REGISTERED; color= red; label= NEED TO KNOW; color= blue;
To distinguish certain compartment words irrespective of the classification with which they are associated, assign a separate color to those words.
% grep Red /usr/share/X11/rgb.txt ... 255 69 0 OrangeRed 219 112 147 PaleVioletRed ... 139 0 0 DarkRed
For example, assign the color OrangeRed to the EMGT compartment:
word= EMGT; color= OrangeRed;
In this example, assign the color MediumPurple4 to the NEED TO KNOW label.
label= NEED TO KNOW; color= MediumPurple4;
