How do I get Mushclient to send bold/underlined/coloured text to a MUCK? Not just the output...

You can't send bold/coloured text to MUDs, using any client...

Except apparently you can in some way because I met a MUCK user who was sending coloured text... ironically they hadn't set their player to see colour, and didn't know they were doing it. apparently they were typing *this* to denote bold.
So now I'm very confused.

Actually, it all depends on how the color configurations are handled on the MU* you're working with. I have been able to send (and frequently still do on SB:R) colorized text on every color enabled mud I've ever played. Check out help color(maybe colour) on your MU* and see what the codes are. Should be a simple matter of inserting them into your messages where you want to play in full color.

Yes, but that's not GETTING the client to send colours... You just type something like &Bthis or ~34this, and it get sent as bold/italics/underline/whatever...
