I tried this with 6.0.1 under WXP-SP2 and it works as you might expect, 
i.e. in color. The Italics are due to SingleLetterItalics->True in 
either the Core or Default nb. I could not figure out how to get around 
these myself. I tried all sorts of things to get rid of the Italics. So, 
I did the unthinkable - I edited Core to change all those to False. I 
also got rid of the annoying Courier fonts that show up in equations.
