I've been experimenting with different colorschemes in vim lately. My problem is that the colors used by the schemes only use the 16 colors in my Profile Preferences, even though my terminal supports a 256 palette.
When I put in tput colors it returns 256. I have my TERM variable set to xterm-256color. I have set t_Co=256 in my .vimrc. On this question How do I enable full-color support in Vim?
