I use putty almost exclusively to connect to CentOS and I have no
problems.  If keywords are blank, I would first check that the
"Default Bold Foreground" is not set to the same value as "Default
Bold Background" in the 'Colours' settings. Also check the character
set on the 'Translation' settings. I use UTF-8.
