[cc65] C128 colors ?

I'm porting a cc65 program targeting the C64 to the C128 (in 80 col.
mode). The program uses quite some conio textcolor() statements.

My problem is that using VICE in C64 and C128 mode the colors look
VERY different. Now I'm wondering if this is a VICE issue or rather
"the reality".

Two examples:

- The program uses COLOR_BLACK, COLOR_GRAY1, COLOR_GRAY2 and
COLOR_GRAY3 to produce four different "shades of grey" but in C128
mode COLOR_GRAY1 looks somewhat green and COLOR_GRAY2 is nearly black.

- The program uses COLOR_YELLOW on a white background. In C64 mode
this is rather dark and therefore easy to read. But in C128 mode it's
really bright yellow therefore unreadable on the white background.

I'd appreciate any hints,
