From the OSP Client Readme
Message Control characters:
===========================
The following control characters describe additional features that can
be utilized for such things as the team chat console, names in the OSP
HUD and MOTD messages.

^B and ^b - make text blink
^F - makes the text display only at the first half of a second
^f - makes the text display only at the last half of a second
^N - resets control stuff like ^B, ^F, ^f
^Xrrggbb - allows the user to define the color using the rgb values
(hex)

(e.g. ^XFF0000 is red, ^X777777 some kind of grey).
