You do that by using this symbol:

It, combined with ONE of the numbers 0 through 7, will cause all text until the next color change or the endofline to be colored.

And as a quick note because there is no edit option, you have to copy and paste that symbol.

As explained numerous times already the required character is a control-character - so isn't readily printable and has no defined visual.
In this case it's the char for vertical-TAB (often represented as "\f" like a newline-char is "\n") ... check packages/base/4b1.cfg line 28 just before the words "security disc" ... that's what it looks like in your editor ... of course, just like with your browser, display of these inherently unprintable characters depends on the character-set (read "font") used.

It's 12, btw.

On a Windows box, Alt+0012 gives you that character, but I can't remember how the manual entry of ASCII works on a Mac.

console.cpp, in void keypress() under the 'else if (saycommandon)' part there is a 'switch(code)' statement. Add this after the 'resetcomplete();' in the 'default:' case:

if (code == SDLK_f && (SDL_GetModState()&MOD_KEYS)) cooked = '\f';

This will let you type CTRL+F and then a number to make coloured text on the command line. And no, I won't help you do this if you don't understand what I am talking about, sorry.
