Definately colour.  Try:

echo "^[[31mtest"

"test" will then be echoed in red (and depending on your shell setup,
anything following also.

There are termcap entries for colour, which I can't see in the
standard termcap for xterm, oh but here they are under "xterm-color".

export TERM=xterm-color

... and see if that improves things...
