Actually, I've never been able to make the & color codes work either,
using DG Scripts pl5a and easy color 2.2 (works in the code and all other
text files, just not scripts)

Unfortunatly, I ripped out the \cXX stuff after writing a function to
strip color codes from < LVL_GOD's input.  I never used them, and it made
the strip_color func a lot smaller.  I was considering making color
variables for scripts, ie: %red% ..... %nrm% but I think there must be an
easier way.
