Hi All!

I want my prompt like this:
bash2.05b User rbram on host cml035835 in dir /cygdrive/c/ Mon Oct 17
12:52:59> 


Here is my attempt so far:
PS1="\n\s\v \[\e[31m\]User \[\e[34m\]\u \[\e[31m\]on host
\[\e[34m\]\h\[\e[31m\] in dir \[\e[34m\]\w\n\d \t> \e[30;47m "

The issue is this: the I am getting black text on grey background - why is
this? I thought "\e[30;47m " means black text on white background. That is
what I understood from this page:
http://www.pantz.org/scripting/shell/colorterm.shtml

Kind regards,

Rob
:)
