Note that zsh provides symbolic variables for color setting:

 autoload -U colors
 colors
 echo "$fg[blue]$bg[red]blue on red!"

so you don't have to memorize the numbers.  See the zshcontrib manpage,
"OTHER FUNCTIONS" section.

If the only difference between your root prompt is color, you can also
just set a1,a2,a3 to different values within your if block, then set
PROMPT outside of it.

 if [[ $USER == root ]] ; then
  a1="%{$fg[cyan]$bg[black]}"
 else
  a1="%{$fg[red]}$bg[black]}"
 fi
 PROMPT="$a1>"

Hey Dan!

I can't find a list of what colors are available. Besides I doubt that mine are accounted for.

I'd be very grateful if you could at least try this prompt out so you know my request:

PROMPT=$'%{\e[01;36m%}(%{\e[22;36m%}%n%{\e[01;30m%}@'
PROMPT+=$'%{\e[22;36m%}%m%{\e[01;36m%})%{\e[01;36m%}%{\e[01;36m%}('
PROMPT+=$'%{\e[22;36m%}%D{%H:%M}%{\e[01;30m%}+%{\e[22;36m%}%D{%d/%m}'
PROMPT+=$'%{\e[01;36m%})%{\e[01;30m\e[00m%}\n%{\e[01;36m%}('
PROMPT+=$'%{\e[22;36m%}%#%{\e[01;30m%}:%{\e[22;36m%}%~%{\e[01;36m%})'
PROMPT+=$'%{\e[01;30m\e[00m%} '

if [[ `whoami` = root ]] then

        PROMPT=$'%{\e[01;31m%}(%{\e[22;31m%}%n%{\e[01;30m%}@'
        PROMPT+=$'%{\e[22;31m%}%m%{\e[01;31m%})%{\e[01;31m%}%{\e[01;31m%}('
        PROMPT+=$'%{\e[22;31m%}%D{%H:%M}%{\e[01;30m%}+%{\e[22;31m%}%D{%d/%m}'
        PROMPT+=$'%{\e[01;31m%})%{\e[01;30m\e[00m%}\n%{\e[01;31m%}('
        PROMPT+=$'%{\e[22;31m%}%#%{\e[01;30m%}:%{\e[22;31m%}%~%{\e[01;31m%})'
        PROMPT+=$'%{\e[01;30m\e[00m%} '

fi

Anyway I just went ahead and tested this:

local a1="01;36m"
local a2="22;36m"
local a3="01;30m"
local b1="01;31m"
local b2="22;31m"
local b3="01;30m"

PROMPT=$'%{$a1}([EMAIL PROTECTED])'
PROMPT+=$'%{$a1}('{$a2}%D{%H:%M}%{$a3}+%{$a2}%D{%d/%m}%{$a1})%{$a3}\n'
PROMPT+=$'%{$a1}(%{$a2}%#%{$a3}:%{$a2}%~%{$a1})'

if [[ `whoami` = root ]] then

        PROMPT=$'%{$b1}([EMAIL PROTECTED])'
        
PROMPT+=$'%{$b1}%{$b1}(%{$b2}%D{%H:%M}%{$b3}+%{$b2}%D{%d/%m}%{$b1})%{$b3}\n'
        PROMPT+=$'%{$b1}(%{$b2}%#%{$b3}:%{$b2}%~%{$b1})'

fi

But I got:

/etc/zshrc:32: parse error near `)'
$a1}([EMAIL PROTECTED])

The:

 if [[ $USER == root ]] ; then
  a1="%{$fg[cyan]$bg[black]}"
 else
  a1="%{$fg[red]}$bg[black]}"
 fi
 PROMPT="$a1>"

Technique sounds very interesting, but it's getting a bit too advanced for my part.

Take care man, and thanks again!

All the best,
Kyrre
