   I'll take this one. If you are referring to Brett's thingy... Just add 
it anywhere you wish! No function calls, no arguments, no shit! I have 
added it everywhere, and it is working excellent. (Found the prob. Brett, 
had an extra line in the array).
  e.g. send_to_char("You found &+W%d platinum, &+Y%dgold, &+w%d silver, 
and &+y%d copper.\r\n", GET_ALL_THE_MONEY_STRINGS ;)
  So, unless a nasty bug shows up down the road (doubtful) I reccomend 
this as the most viable color code. Works well in and out of code!
