+        <p>
+          Adding colour to the forrest output messages will greatly assist
+          readability.
+        </p>
+        <p>
+          Set the ANT_ARGS environment variable like so:<br />
+          <code>export ANT_ARGS="$ANT_ARGS -logger org.apache.tools.ant.listener.AnsiColorLogger"</code>
+        </p>
+        <p>
+          To change the default colours, set the ANT_OPTS environment variable
+          like so:<br />
+          <code>export ANT_OPTS="$ANT_OPTS -Dant.logger.defaults=$FORREST_HOME/etc/AnsiColorLogger.properties"</code><br
/>
+          and create that configuration file as
+          <link href="http://ant.apache.org/manual/listeners.html#AnsiColorLogger">explained</link>
+          in the Apache Ant Manual.
+        </p>
+        <p>
+          Note that not all terminals support ANSI color codes.
