Hi,

Running Serv UO. Been dinking around trying to change the item color however preserving the actual item name. I know it is possible however tried a couple different things, and being a newbie, plus several hours scouring the forums, I can't find a workable solution. If I need to post all the code, I can. I am guessing it is something with an override.

    }

list.Add(String.Format("<BASEFONT COLOR=#FFA500>{0}<BASEFONT COLOR=#FFFFFF>", this.Name));

This line, I think should look something like this:

C#:
list.Add(String.Format("<BASEFONT COLOR=#FFA500>{0}</BASEFONT>", this.Name));
