Simply Glyphed - An XChat Theme
There are not too many text event themes for XChat, and most of them are very out of date. This theme is designed for XChat 2.8.x, and creates "icons" for text events using certain Unicode Characters. The theme is named "Simply Glyphed" because:

Download (and changelog)
Provided is a zip file that contains a colors.conf and a pevents.conf file. You do not need the colors.conf file if you don't want my color scheme (I find that black on grey is very easy on my eyes, and so the colors are based around this concept). There are two ways to install the text events, the first you do within xchat, the second, you would have to close out of xchat before installing.
Font Specific Information
Personally, I like fixed width fonts, and so this theme was designed while using DejaVu Sans Mono Book. Other fonts will work, below is a list of Unicode fonts I have tested that both work, and don't work.
Arabic Typesetting, Arial, Arial Narrow, Arial Rounded MT Bold, Arial Unicode MS, Baskerville Old Face, Book Antiqua, Bookman Old Style, Cabria, Candara, Century, Century Schoolbook, Comic Sans MS, Consolas, Constantias, Corbel, Cordia New Cordiaupc, Courier New, DejaVu Sans, DejaVu Serif, Euphemia, Franklin Gothic Book, FreeMono, FreeSans, FreeSerif, Garamond, Georgia, Lucida Bright, Lucida Console, Lucida Sans, Lucida Sans Typewritter, Lucida Sans Unicode, Microsoft Sans Serif, Nimbus Roman No9, Nimbus Sans L, Tahoma, Verdana, Vrinda
This list is by far not exhaustive, and if there is a font you find that works, please, let me know. I like fixed width, but that doesn't mean everyone does.
If someone creates a variable width font modification for one of the Free fonts (as in, a legal modification) that works with Simply Glyphed, I would be happy to hear about it. DejaVu does provide the source files for FontForge.
