Highlight the current date on a GeekTool 'cal' geeklet

The second comment above is an excellent suggestion; it produces a green colour using the ANSI terminal control sequence 1;32 . You can vary this foreground colour by changing the 32 to one of the following values:
Foreground Colours
30 Black
31 Red
32 Green
33 Yellow
34 Blue
35 Magenta
36 Cyan
37 White
You can also control the background colour, make the selected date blink, etc.
by appending additional attributes. Google for "ANSI/VT100 Terminal Control" for full information.
