Required syntax:

bind "x" "sayTeam '^2LOW'"

The quotations around the key x, or whatever key you want it to be are necessary. The quotations around the command string are necessary also and you MUST have the single quotation marks around the string of text you want to send or the colors WILL NOT appear.

You can also use RGB color as well. The correct format for that is this:

bind "x" "sayTeam '^c800LOW'".

There is an RGB color chart that can be found here. Check it out.

One of the more interesting, if less functional things you can do is gradients. I used them just for fun but ultimately they are not that useful.

^+ and ^- create gradients.

So if you did something along the lines of:

bind "x" "sayTeam '^2L^+O^+W'"

This would create a gradient.

This will probably be most useful in names or clan tags.

You can also use icons of weapons in your name using the following syntax:

ui_name " ^iw09 ^1whore"

The ^iw09 (with the 09 corresponding to the weapon impulse number) is what inserts the icon.
There are other icons available from this list:

^iw00: Gauntlet
^iw01: Machine Gun
^iw02: Shotgun
^iw03: Hyperblaster
^iw04: Grenade Launcher
^iw05: Nailgun
^iw06: Rocket Launcher
^iw07: Railgun
^iw08: Lightning Gun
^iw09: Dark Matter Gun

^ifls: Strogg Flag
^iflm: Marine Flag

^irgn: Regeneration
^idbl: Doubler
^igrd: Guard
^isct: Scout
^iqad: Quad Damage

^ivce: Voice Enabled
^ivcd: Voice Disabled
^ifdd: Player Muted
^ifde: Player Unmuted
^ipbe: Punkbuster Logo
^idse: Armor Shard
^ipse: Padlock
^ifve: Star
^idm0: Skull 'n' Crossbones
^idm1: Green X
^iarr: Right Arrow

I haven't found a use for weapon icons in team chat...I don't really see much point, although I suspect that with OSP we will be able to broadcast current weapons to our teammates or tell the them what we have or what we need.

When all 3 Settings are ready, your name looks like so:

seta ui_clan "^8{^c059E^c009W^c0059Z^8}^1®️"
seta ui_name "^8^idm0^c359Q^c259u^c159a^c059k^c0093R^c059n^c159o^c259i^c359A^8™️"
