How do I get nifty effects with ircII ?

You can highlight messages you send using control chars: parts of text surrounded by control-b ( ^B) will appear in video reverse to most ircII users for instance. However the appearance of such effects relies on the terminal abilities of the user you're writing to.

In some cases keys are already bound to something else. For instance, ^B is normally bound to BACKWARD_CHARACTER, so you will need to define a ``quote-character'' key: just enter `` /BIND _CHARACTERW QUOTE'' then `` /BIND ^^WB SELF_INSERT'' and it may work...
