Try looking at:

  http://www.bluesock.org/~willg/dev/ansi.html

and

  http://vt100.net/

If you use an escape sequence and a given client seems to ignore it,
then I'd check the sequence and if it's right assume the client is
ignoring it.

It's doubtful that most mud clients support full ANSI let alone
VT100/102 emulation.

If you've found a feature that seems to work in a mud-base for the
client but not with your code, you can setup a simple raw socket and
log all the data to capture the sequence that's being used.
