Images don't work for me, take me to some blog.
Edit: Yeah I wrote "WoW Color Hack" twice in the title and I don't know why...you can thank marijuana for that.
I've decided to release this...
Here's an excerpt from the read-me:
Code:WoWColorHack.flt -=Preamble=- I'm quite surprised that no one has released anything similar yet - the theory behind this dates back to the alpha days. Hell, I first used this filter on my own alpha sandbox. -=Theory=- *Almost* all text in WoW either allows for or at one time allowed for the use of color codes. These color codes look like this: The following text is |cFF00FF00 GREEN The tag is |c and the hex-code is obviously the color. These codes are used throughout the game and are how most, if not all, colored text is handled. So why not just /say |cFF00FF00 Marijuana and be done with it? Well, Blizzard made the client automatically replace any |'s that typed with ||'s (which ||c is NOT a tag). Then the client just displays |cFF00FF00 Marijuana (replacing ||'s with |'s for display purposes only). Thus, you have to circumvent the client's alterations. A packet filter in WPE Pro would work nicely. Perhaps if I make my own color tag and replace it (using a filter) with the actual color tag, I will bypass the client. Thanks to Diablo II's ridiculous color code shenanigans, Blizzard was smart this time and made their server start checking for color codes sent by you. Therefore filtering |c into your chat message will do very little because the server will change the |'s to ||'s. Lucky for you, they haven't done that everywhere. It's up to you to try it out here and there. !!!!!!!! ON OFFICIAL BLIZZARD SERVERS: I know it still works in your guild information text, your guild note text, and your guild MOTD. I know it used to work in mail but last time I tried, it returned a 'Mail Database Error' or something to that effect. !!!!!!!! ON EMULATED SERVERS: As far as I have tested, it works in all text. !!!!!!!! Pretty much everyone who has developed a server for WoW (presumably} knows about these codes and how they work which is why I'm surprised this sort of filter has yet to be released to the public. -=Hack=- This filter replaces all occurances of 'fc' with '|c' sent from the client. Simply typing fcFF00FF00 Marijuana will send |cFF00FF00 Marijuana to the server. Just open it in WPE Pro, turn on the filter, and start your colorful adventure. -=Detectability=- I cannot guarentee how detectable this is. It requires WPE Pro which injects code into WoW - which Warden is known to be capable of watching for. On the other hand, I've yet to ever be banned from it (and have been using it on and off since day one). Still, my situation may be a little different than most which prevents my ban. Also, it would be hella-easy for Blizzard to to just add a few extra lines of code to their servers that automatically ban anyone who sends text with a |c in it instead of a ||c. Would they? Doubt it. Could they? Def.
Obviously virus free since it's just a WPE Pro filter.
Here's a download:
On a final note, nothing this does is "client side only". In the above screeenshots, the colored text is visible to everyone.
Oh yeah, and please read the damn Read Me. This hack expects that you know how to work WPE Pro (not in an advanced way - just open this filter).

i see wat u are doing but theres macros that change ur colour too like this:
/run if (not scm) then scm = SendChatMessage; end; function SendChatMessage(msg, type, lang, chan) scm("\124cff00ff00\124Hitem: 19:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h"..msg.."\124h\124r", type, lang, chan); end;
changes your text colour to lime green i dont know if it works anymore but u can give it a try also i havent tried your colour hack yet but ill see if it works
also for some reason u can get a temp ban for using the macro dumb asss blizzard bans u for using theyre own macros

What are other colors?
Here's a download (copy and paste this URL into your browser):
My hack lets you put color in all guild related text and (on emulated servers) you can use color in chat and mail (and if it is an especially poorly written emulated server, character names and guild names).
Go here to download WPE Pro and Perm Edit:
So you can make any color in the 32bit spectrum.
