Here's a cool feature I just discovered: colorable console text. Download TweakUI, the venerable expose-all-the-secret-features tool from Microsoft. On the Command Prompt page is the setting Enable Selection Coloring. When enabled, you can select a chunk of text in a command window, then hit Alt+0 through Alt+9 to change the text color, or Ctrl+0 through Ctrl+9 to change the background color. The changes stick, so you can mark up command output, or any other console window. Very handy.
