re: Long item-list fix

I don't know about everybody else, but when I'm mudding, I scan more for 
color coding and numbers in the text coming from the MUD than for actual 
content.  Having the number of the item in parentheses makes more sense 
(for me) than writing out the word for the number.  I also hate places 
that color "You hit him" messages red and "He blocks your hit" messages 
green.  For me, it's counterintuitive.
