Summary0005473: Make the IRCd send codes like \x02 as bold, \x01 as italic, etc, in the MOTD
DescriptionIdea:
\x02Welcome to network $network-name\x02
- This would be seen by the IRC client in bold text

\x01Join #Help for help with IRC commands\x01
- This would be seen as italic text by the IRC client

\x034Don't spam, flood, advertise\x03
- This would be seen as red text by the IRC client

I believe that most of the IRC clients do support this feature though.

Cheers!

We had stuff similar to that in the past (though not sure if it accepted this exact sequence), but we removed it: 0003002
The idea is that MOTD and RULES files are text files and we just send them as-is (unless oversized). So just throw your bold/underline/etc codes in there directly.
I think you should get an editor which can handle this properly. Is that brutal to say ? :D
