  Yup, it is a matter of opinion; I can't believe there wasn't a
  consensus. Have you *ever* read an HTML style guide that said that
  the <blink> tag is good? Most of them say that the <blink> tags are
  evil because they keep the user from being able to concentrate on
  the real content. The blinking block cursor is no different.

  I'm using whatever came out of the box. They are monochrome. How do
  I turn on the color ones?
