Some Private Use Area code points for courtyard codes for text colour.
Colour changing is by a specially devised method which will hopefully be efficient in practice.
Upon receiving one of the 18 codes to change colour, the system presumes on a temporary basis that the new colour is to become the foreground colour, which is what it will usually be. However, the previous foreground colour is stored. If a command to set one of the other four colours is received, then the foreground colour is used for that purpose, with the foreground colour being replaced by the previous foreground colour.
This means that only one code point is needed to change the foreground colour and two code points are needed to change the contents of any of the other colour registers.
The decoration colours are intended to be ready for the possible introduction of chromatic fonts at some future date.
