Before using commands, read the manual (or man page).

As far as the error but the color changed - you needed to put in echo " ^[[33m test ^[[30m"

Suggest you learn commands and how to use them before wanting to add bells and whistles.
ok thanks
i got it to work..

while [ $xx ];
close i's
sleep 1
open i's
sleep 1

But this may not be what you were looking for.

^[[5m is blinking
^[[1m is brighter

u can do also ^[[31;5m for color + blinking or even ^[[31;5;1m

Error Stop Flashing and turn down brightness

How do you get a single word in a line to blink rather then the whole line?

And how do you turn down the brightness of the text after displaying a certain word?
