Heh, I initially thought about using 99 (btw, it is not the "normal text colour", it's the transparent colour; it makes a difference) but dismissed it because of this:

//var %x = ab,123,xy | !.echo -q $regsub(%x,/^(.)(.)(.*)(.)(.)$/g,\104\299\304\499\5,%x) | echo -s %x

Heh, I was just going to suggest ^k99 but I see codemastr just did. Transparent color? I know nothing about that... transparent would indicate something slightly more transparent than the value of $colour(Normal). I just changed my Normal Text color to Orange and sure enough, ^k99 looks orange. Another thing I discovered the other day, if you use 99 for a background color, it also displays the default background color. (This was slightly disappointing as I was trying to hide text using ^k99,99)

Other alternatives would be ^o (if you have no reserve against using ^o, and have no other formatting to lose). I'd personally use that before doing ^b^b or ^u^u. I only ever use that method if I want to swear on a channel or on these forums.

These examples would make the difference more apparent:

//echo 4 -s one $+($chr(3),$color(normal),$chr(44),8two,$chr(3)) three

//echo 4 -s one $+($chr(3),99,$chr(44),8two,$chr(3)) three

Then I suppose you might call it the Default Color.
Default Color == Normal Color, superseded by Line Color if present.
It would still be more equivalent to a closing ^k character. Eg, using ^k99 in a topic would return it to Green instead of Black (vanilla colorset).

Btw, in case there's a misunderstanding, I don't call it "transparent" color, Khaled does. /help control codes

99 is the default colour, not necessarily equal to $color(normal). It depends on what you specified as the colour parameter on echo/aline/etc, which is $color(normal) if not specified. It does almost what a closing ^k (or ^o, ignoring other ctrl codes) does, except that a closing ^k also blocks background colours, while using 99 you'd need ^k99,99 to do the same thing.
This is why Khaled calls it transparent, I guess.
