Do not forget the program BOXSHADE, by Kay Hofmann, also available from the 
EMBL with ftp.  (ftp.embl-heidelberg.de)
It it very similar to Prettybox but does not follow the GCG syntax. The input
can be a GCG  .msf , a clustal .aln or a maligned data file. The realy good
thing is the out put which can be a Postcript file, an EPS but also send to 
a REGIS, a color SIXEL or even a VT terminal.
