Hows does one display their online status with color?

I've seen people with custom online status under this name with colors, but {Yel} {Red} etc etc isn't working for me...

Is it done another way?

{red} red {ora} orange {yel} yellow {gre} green {blu} blue {pur} purple {vio} pink {bei} beige {whi} white {blk} black

All commands can be seen here:

Things like darkblast form don't work currently for obvious reasons
