I can't speak to devmon *specifically* but generically speaking, the 
contents of the status message are controlled by the sender. The hard 
way to put it in would be to add the HTML IMG tag by hand, but 
fortunately there's an easier method :) Adding a '&red', '&yellow' or 
other &color to your status message on a line will cause the web 
interface to insert the appropriate color GIF for you automatically.
