Looking for the list of Messenger Plus! Color Codes (MSN Plus Color Codes / MSN Color Codes / Messenger Color Codes / MSN Messenger Plus! Color Codes / Msg Plus Color Codes / Messenger Plus Color Codes / MSN Color Code / MSN Colour Codes / Nick Name Color Codes)? Here you go…

Here you will get the codes which you can MANUALLY put before your MSN Nick Names or Status/Personal Message. Be noted that the viewer needs to have MSN Plus! installed to view the colored result.

If your are looking for a plugin to make nicks colored, read my other tutorial How to use color MSN nicks

Here goes the list of MSN Plus Colour Codes :
Bold: ·#
Italic: ·&
Strike Out: ·'
Underline: ·@
Color: ·$
Terminate: ·0

To use the color code you would need to put a color value after the ·$ sign.

For example to get orange you would have to use ·$7 as 7 is the code for orange. These numbers ase similar to mIRC Color Codes.

More Examples of Color Codes:
White: ·$0 (White)
Black: ·$1 (Black)
Marine: ·$2 (Marine)
Green: ·$3 (Green)
Red: ·$4 (Red)

You can wrap these Color Codes with Bold/Italic/Underline/Strikeout codes.
So if you wanna have a Bold Orange text you put:

Use ·0 to terminate a code.

So to have 1st part in Bold and 2nd part in Italic we do:
This is ·#Bold·0 and this is ·$Italic·0

You can use these codes on Windows Live Messenger ( WLM ) too.
