colors in xterm

hello list,

normally i use two different xterms, one invoked simply as "xterm" with
default white background, and the other thus:

xterm -bg black -cr grey -fg white -C -fn 9x15 -sl 500

the problem is that ls uses the same set of colors for both xterms, and some
colors that are clearly visible against a dark background are unreadable on
the other, and vice versa.

where should i start searching? this happens in vim too, although color sets
are supposedly different for "light" and "dark" backgrounds...
