Is there any console emulator for Windows that interprets ANSI coloring?

We use rspec and a part of our team use Windows and the special string for coloring are not very useful for them ;).

ConEmu supports ANSI X3.64 with Xterm 256 color extension. I'm the author of this console emulator.

Ansi sequences are handled for all processes, running in ConEmu tabs.

AFAIK, ConEmu supports more codes, than Ansicon.
