If you browse the TranscriptStream's show: procedure you'll see
that it will send asString to the object you hand in, so in you
case the attributes of the Text get ignored as asString on Text
will just return the content's string.

So out of the box a colorized Transcript isn't possible.

Kind regards,


May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
suffering, and may you live with ease.
