Question Inverse Video

I am trying to discover the sequence of escape characters that I need to pass ksh in order to turn inverse video on and off. I need this information for two reasons:

* I want to include inverse video text in some shell scripts
* I wish to highlight a section of an /etc/motd file

Thanks for any help:

This is info on changing your prompt color, but you can apply the information to shell scripts too. Just "echo" the characters.
