Ever wondered how to get cool signs like this?

Well this tutorial is for you!

Basic:

To create a colored text on a sign you have to type "&" followed by a number or letter, which represents a color, followed by the text you want in that color. (see color references below)

Visual example:

So as you can see we have a sign with "Mutts World!" written in red text.
To create this you would do this:

Simple as!

More complex:

You can combine colors on different levels of the sign.
So you could do this:

By typing this:

Color to "&" references:
&0 Black
&1 Navy
&2 Green
&3 Blue
&4 Red
&5 Purple
&6 Gold
&7 LightGray
&8 Gray
&9 SkyBlue
&a LightGreen
&b LightBlue
&c Rose
&d LightPurple
&e Yellow
&f White

UPDATE: 03/10/11
After seeing the response on sign coloring I thought I would add some more knowledge for you.

You can create single words in one color by doing this:
Using the, for example, &4 in front of one word in a text line this can allow that individual word to be colored

Visual Example:
Posted Image

However where ever you add the &4 all characters after it will be colored in the red, so if you wanted to have only one word in the red and all others black then you would need to do this:

Posted Image
(the clever people may of noticed that all I really did was use &0 which is Black, to return it to it's original color)

Many people may ask "what's the point in having colors on signs?!"
Well here are just some ideas of some things you can do with this.

-----Locking the thread as this feature is no longer in use-----
Please note: Signs that have been colored will remain colored, so don't destroy them!
