Color and formatting codes

Now that you have got a handle on how to build rooms, objects, and NPCs, we will now give you the ability to format text the way you want it formatted and color it as well. Currently the VME doesn't support all the ASCII characters but if we get enough people wanting this ability it will be added.

The escape character

When working with colors or formatting there are always two parts to a formatting command. The first part we call the escape character which is the '&' character. Thus all formatting and color commands would look as follows:

	&<color or formating command>
