The crayon package in R uses ANSI color codes sent to the terminal. The
regular color codes are 30-37. For example, 31 is red, which you can see
R> red("this is red")
 "\033[31mthis is red\033[39m"
The pillar package is using silver (really gray, but called silver to avoid
a name clash) to print place-holding zeros that are not really of
interest. But silver/gray is not part of the 8 ANSI base colors stored
in ansi-color-names-vector. Instead, silver() uses code 90, which is a
part of the high-intensity colors.
But the high-intensity colors are not supported by ansi-color.el, at least
by default. Someone has created a fix for this by extending the colors.
I have not tried this to see if it works.
