I will need to "close" each prompt line with an end-hilight
code, do the \n, then begin the next line with a start-hilight
code, such as:
PS1='\[\e[0;7m\]\h[\w]\[\e[0m\]\n\[\e[0;7m\]\u\$\[\e[0m\] '
.                     ^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^

But do I put \[ \] around a \n (or include it there-in) ?


Bash knows exactly what \n means in PS1 and can handle it well so we need
not put \[ \] around \n .

BTW: I also use MacOSX on my iBook G4.
