I don't know if this is a configuration problem or a true bug when I use solarized-dark in emacs, the background is bright yellow-green. When I'm not in emacs, solarized-dark looks as it's suppose to. I think solarized light is also having issues. I can see semicolons, but not text that follows them (in a lisp comment).

GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (mac-apple-darwin) of 2011-06-24 on doublemagnum.apple.com
Here a screenshot showing emacs in solarized-dark in iTerm 2 also running solarized-dark.
Try to improve appearance on low-color terminals.
This also removes the `solarized-termcolors` custom variable, as we now try to detect the number of terminal colors automatically.
Hopefully, this fixes issues #22, #30, and #54.
Hopefully this issue is fixed. Please reopen issue #22 if it's still an issue.
