there are different ways to do..... Do like this in a server &1 that is blue look up the color codes online they are the same for prefixes. but every new line on a sign you must do another &1 or a different color you also need a bukkit plugin ColoredSigns to do it in a server. this is a true lie what he has posted. there is no way to color your words only on a sign it is possible unless the owner changes the chat color.

In front of the number, you do a & symbol, no % or #. To make this work on signs you need A mod (for single player) or a Plugin (for Servers). In server chat, this mainly will be dissabled in config files as Admins dont wnt all these different chat colours.
