As I find myself starting yet another project that that wants to use ANSI

Is there a better / different control sequence that I can ~> should use for
colorizing / stylizing output that will account for the differences in
capabilities between a VT100 and XTerm?
Can I wrap things that I output so that I don't send color control sequences
to a TERMinal that doesn't support them?
