1. Great job on the book! I appreciate having a single place to look up everything I need to know about programming WoW. There's a lot of good guidance and walk throughs.

    I spent last evening skimming the book and I did not see any place where you discuss color codes that you can use to alter the color of the text you display in the chat windows. It is mentioned a couple of places, but there is no place (not clearly identified in the index or that I saw while scanning through it) where you break down these codes.

    There are also addtional codes that are used to link items in the game. Are there any addtional codes/chat markup that you have discovered that might be useful?

    Thanks for the book guys!

    P.S. I heard about the book on "The Instance" podcast, so credit them for at least one sale. :P

    Admittedly we don't cover this anywhere in the book because the format of these strings (including textures, colors) would be a chapter in and of itself.  That being said, it's definitely something that can and should be covered on the website and possibly included for a second edition.  Here's hoping we can find time to get it written!
