Having struggled with that scenario, I have been stripping attributes
and changing colours with this
file 'x.x' ; color back w; color text k; include 'x.x' r
Then, having had some trouble with the next color command, I next mark
an area of text, and issue command
color mark gray reverse
Some time soon I'm going to put those into a command macro to run
through *all* the SCL and PROGRAM entries in a catalog.
