Not too sure how to describe what I am looking for, but in XChat the users are offset from the text they write which makes it much easier to read.

Here's a screen shot of XChat of what I am looking for in mIRC:

Does anyone know if mIRC does this sort of formatting?

Thanks!

You can create your own theme to do something like this.

Oh really? That's good news. Do you have a link handy where I could find some guidance on making a theme?

Thanks!

You can't actually have the alignment that xchat has with standard mIRC themes. You'd need to use a dll or something for that, but I don't know of any offhand.

Oh. Ok, well thanks for replying anyway! XChat sure does make it easy to read in chat, but other than that I prefer mIRC.
