This short write-up is an attempt to explain everything color token. Upon reading this, you should be able to create, with next to zero effort, text strings of any color anywhere (almost). While this write-up should be of interest to everyone, this isn't a tutorial to building, scripting or 2da/tlk editing. You must have relevant knowledge if you want to use color tokens in the respective fields. The emphasis of this write-up is the concept of color tokens and colors in general only.

Aurora Toolset Item Creation FAQ by David Zigler 9kb Download
The purpose of this FAQ is to explain what property does what when you're making items through the Aurora Toolset, because the manual is rather sketchy on the details of various enchantments.
